She evades 

IF ONLY this lovely ^ ef c |, arm 

girl could stand for- 
ever as you see her here— serene, beauti- 
ful, goddess-like! But when she smiles— 
when lovely lips part and reveal dull 
teeth and dingy gums— how quickly and 
tragically tlie spell of beauty is broken. 


It may not seem dangerous— that first 
warning "tinge of pink" on your tooth 
brush. It may seem trivial, unimportant. 
But your dentist will tell you it can be 
and has been the prologue to many a 
dental tragedy. Remember— "pink tooth 
brush" is a distress signal, and only a 
distress signal. But when you see it, play 

close-ups . . . Dingy teeth and tender 
..She ignored the warning of "Pink 

saf e— see your dentist. The chances are that 
it does not mean a serious gum disorder 
— but your dentist should make the decision. 
Usually, however, it only means gums 
that have grown tender and flabby under 
our modern soft food menus— gums that 
need more exercise, more stimulation— 
and as so many dentists will often advise 
—gums that need the help of Ipana and 

For Ipana, with massage, is designed 
to help benefit your gums as well as clean 
your teeth. Rub a little extra Ipana onto 
your gums every time you brush your 
teeth. Lazy gums awaken. Circulation 

gums destroy 

Tooth Brush" stimulates gum tissues. 

You'll soon sense a new, 
healthy firmness in the gum walls them- 

Ipana Tooth Paste and massage is ap- 
proved by many modern dentists, taught 
by many modern teachers in classrooms 
all over the country. Don't take chances. 
Even before you see that "tinge of pink" 
on your own tooth brush, even before you 
have this first warning of danger— sched- 
ule yourself for this modern dental health 
routine with Ipana and massage. Don't 
risk being a "dental cripple." Change to 
Ipana and massage, and help keep your 
smile lovely, bright, sparkling— and safer.

Cecil B. DeMille brings you Gary 
and Jean in their grandest pic- 
ture ... the story of Wild Bill 
Hickok and Calamity Jane, the 
hardest boiled pair of lovers 
who ever rode the plains ... a 
glorious romance set against 
the whole flaming pageant of 
the Old West . . . 

"You've got courage enough 
to kill a dozen Indians . . .why 
haven't you courage enough 
to admit you love me?" 

"Go ahead. Do your worst.

Laughing at a great chief so

Pickford-Rogers Betrothal 

As you are reading this item Mary 
Pickford may be packing her bags for 
a tour of the Scandanavian countries, 
after which she will be married to Charles 
"Buddy" Rogers. The long suspected ro- 
mance was revealed in Hollywood at an 
elaborate tea just before "Buddy" de- 
parted on a personal appearance tour. 
"Buddy" is due in England shortly for 
a command performance at the Annual 
King George V. Charity Ball. After that 
he will make a film called Radio Parade 
of 1937, for a British company. The wed- 
ding probably will not take place until 
this work is completed, sometime in the 
early spring. Their plans were kept 
under strictest secrecy until "Buddy" 
Rogers' father slipped up and revealed 
the betrothal. 

Two Favorites Pass 

Out of the annals of age came Chic Sale, 
beginning his work on the screen years 
ago in the evening of life, invariably 
playing the role of an aged man although 
he himself was young in years. As time 
passed by he grew older in fact, younger 
in his roles, steadily heading toward Youth 
on the screen. 

Soon he was to throw aside all make- 
up, reveal himself as he really was, a well- 
preserved man just bordering on fifty but 
looking like forty. He had had a brief 
spell of "hard times," but was rejoicing 
recently in the signing of contracts that 
might quite easily have made him a star. 

Pneumonia struck suddenly a fortnight 
ago, just as he was preparing to do a series 
of feature roles. Before he could get 
before a camera he had fought — and lost — 
a battle with death. 

The "grand old man" of the screen is 
gone without ever having been himself on 
the screen. Thousands of people will re- 
member him through the years not as the 
young man he actually was, but as the 

The death of Charles (Chic) Sale ended one of 
+h j most unusual careers on the screen. Be- 
ginning his screen career in "old man" roles, 
he was working back downward through the 
years and was about to become a "young man" 
on the screen when Death let down the curtain 

quaint, querulous, quizzical old soul with 
a crick in his back and shaky legs. 

Just as the death of Chic Sale shocked 
Hollywood so did the passing of Madame 
Schumann-Heink bring widespread 
mourning. She was rapidly becoming 
known as the "grand old lady" of the 
screen as well as the music world. Thou- 
sands will join us in saying, "Good-bye, to 
you both — God speed in the Adventure

Hollywood's New Heart Throb 

About the most popular male in Holly- 
wood in recent weeks is Jack O'Sullivan, 

handsome young soldier brother of 
Maureen O'Sullivan. Jack, a lieutenant in 
the King's Guards in Dublin, came to Hol- 
lywood with his mother for a visit with 
his famous sister, the recent bride of John 
Farrow, a screen writer. No sooner had 
Lieutenant Jack set foot in the movie 
capital than the girls were speculating 
about him. However, he seemed happiest 
when he was out with Ginger Rogers. 

Gary Plans a Safari 

Gary Cooper, who, despite his years in 
Hollywood, is still a lover of the great open 
spaces, is planning on another big game 
hunt in Africa. It will take place some 
time next year and on his safari into the 
elephant and lion country he will be ac- 
companied by his wife, the former Sandra 
Shaw, and by Madeleine Carroll and her 
husband, Captain Philip Astley. 

Sullavan Fools Hollywood 

Margaret Sullavan's marriage to Leland 
Heyward constituted one of Hollywood's 
biggest surprises of the month. Even 
close friends felt that Miss Sullavan, if 
she might be planning any alliance, would 
remarry Director William Wyler whom 
she divorced not so long ago. And on 
the other hand Heyward's long devotion 
to Katharine Hepburn was always re- 
garded in the light of a romance rather 
than a business association as her mana- 
ger. Events such as these make Holly- 
wood prophets a bit shaky. 

Whither Norma Shearer? 

Apparently authentic news reports in- 
dicate that Norma Shearer has disposed ot 
the 35,000 shares of Lcew's stock held by 
her husband, Irving Thalberg, before his 

Grace Moore gives a party! Here she is shown telling Harry 
Cohn, Columbia studio president, how to play the hand properly!

Many guests gathered at Grace's party, including these: Valentin Parera (her 
husband), Myrna Loy, Tai Lachman, Boris Lovet-Lorski, Daisy Lukas, Mrs. Adolphe 
Zukor, Cary Grant. Mary Pickford and Loretta Young were there, too!

SMOOTH, satiny shoulders — lovely 
skin "all over" — a radiantly clear, 
youthful complexion — men admire them and 
modern style demands them. 

To be truly lovely, you must rid your skin of 
ugly pimples on face and body. And thousands 
are doing it, with complete success. 

The real cause of disorders resulting in ugly 
pimples may be nothing in the world except a 
lack of the yeast vitamins B and G. When 
these elements are not present in the human 
diet in sufficient quantities, the intestinal tract 
becomes weak and sluggish. Its function is 
badly impaired. Constipation is likely to ensue 
and this, in turn, often shows up in pimply skin. 

Countless men and women have found that 
in such cases, Yeast Foam Tablets work won- 
ders. This pure dry yeast supplies vitamins 
B and G in abundant quantities and thus 
tends to restore the intestinal tract to normal 
— in those instances of vitamin deficiency. With 
the intestinal tract again in healthy function, 
pimples should quickly disappear. 

Start now. Try Yeast Foam Tablets and 
give them the chance to give you the same 
welcome relief they have brought to so many

Hollywood Newsreel 

(Continued from page eight) 

Conference time does not necessarily mean strict business on a studio set. Here's a pleasant 

session between Eddie Sutherland (director) in the foreground, and from the left: Bobbie Vernon, 

Gladys Swarthout, Frank Chapman (her husband), and Fred MacMurray 

These shares represented an important 
interest in the company that controls 
M-G-M studio and other enterprises. It 
is reported that Miss Shearer sold the 
stock to English interests for more than 

Two important questions arise: Does 
this mean that Norma Shearer is breaking 
all bonds with her past and will quit the 
screen? And, are English interests, none 
too successful in attempting to gain a spot- 
light in the film world, seeking to get a 
foothold in American companies? Only 
time will answer either question. 

Bob Burns Keeps His Head 

An all time high in personality is being 
set by Bob Burns, the Bazooka lad from 
Arkansas. Bob went through plenty of 
downs before he finally got up and now 
that he's making about $400,000 a year he 
refuses to put on a high hat. He is the 
easiest of the biggies in Hollywood to sign 
for a benefit and he's always on tap when 
some charity outfit needs a hand. Around 
Paramount studio workers started calling 
him Mr. Burns, but they had to change 
to Bob to get an answer. 

A Touch of Irony 

There was an ironical ring to a scene in 
Mind Your Own Business at Paramount 
not long ago. Property men went out to 
get some scrap books to use in a sequence 
and they came back with a flock from the 
old Christie comedy studio, now being 

vacated. The books were loaded with 
writeups and pictures of Vera Steadman, 
who was once a top comedy star, but who 
was playing a bit in the particular scene 
in which the scrap books were being used. 

Adolphe's Pride and Joy 

The elaborate nursery Adolphe Menjou 
and Verree Teasdale had built into their 
mansion in the Los Feliz hills a year and 
a half ago when the stork hovered above 
their chimney — and later flew off without 
paying them a visit — finally has an occu- 
pant, and the suave Adolphe is Holly- 
wood's proudest daddy. 

Adolphe II, nine and a half months old, 
was found in the Evanston (111.) Cradle. 
His adoption by the Menjous was legal- 
ized by the Chicago courts. 

Now Adolphe spends his studio luncheon 
periods on Hollywood Boulevard buying 
new toys. 

Bob Taylor's Privacy Gone! 

A Son Comes Home might well be the 
title of a story about the rush trip Bob 
Taylor took to his old home town of 
Beatrice, Neb. He hoped to spend a few 
quiet days with the family after finishing 
his role opposite Greta Garbo in Camille. 
But when he landed, via plane, there was 
a turnout of 12,000 persons, all the stores, 
schools and public offices were closed for 
the occasion, the streets were decorated 
with banners bearing his name and he was 
escorted home by a parade two miles long 


Accept No Substitute::! Always Insist on the Advertised Brand! 

and having a company of the National 
Guard and four bands. That same evening 
the governor of Nebraska went to Beatrice 
to personally tell Bob how proud his home 
state is of his success. Incidentally, those 
who have been losing sleep over reports of 
a hot and heavy romance with Garbo need 
not worry. It was nothing more than a 
mild flirtation and is all over now. 

Gable's Present to Carole 

When Carole Lombard's most recent 
birthday rolled around, there was a family 
party — and Clark Gable was among those 
present. Clark presented her with a sports 
bracelet in gold and a pedigreed cocker

head road will be kept open all winter,

Opportunity Knocks 

Here's an opportunity for somebody. 
The New Universal is looking for a group 
of strong and handsome young men to 
play soldiers' parts in The Road Back, 
Eric Remarque's sequel to his famous All 
Quiet on the Western Front. And every- 
body remembers what a role in the latter 
picture did for Lew Ayres. 

That's Hollywood for You! 

The most widely publicized romance in 
Hollywood today is that of Jeanette Mac- 
Donald and Gene Raymond. Now they're 
going to be married — now it's postponed — 
now a date is set — and so forth. The only 
thing sure is that they are much enam- 
oured of each other. They will probably 
be married next June, which isn't exactly 

Arliss to Return? 

Rumors are floating around Hollywood, 
traced to film players recently returned 
from London, that George Arliss has not 
done so well in his latest screen ventures 
abroad and yearns to return to Hollywood 
for a picture or two. 

When Arliss was here before his con- 
tract called for $80,000 per picture; a 
town house the rent of which was to be 
paid for by said studio; a car and a 
chauffeur at his disposal during the term 
of his contract and, always, a role for Mrs. 
Arliss in every picture — and at better than 
just a four figure salary. 

Doubtful if that can happen again.

She Wins Boyer's Phonograph 

Dear Editor: 

It just accelerates my pulse reading that fans are 
responsible for the recent damage to Margaret Sul- 
Iavan's arm, when it was practically all healed. If 
this is adoration . . . give me complete obscurity! 

Poor Margaret is Europe-bound to rest and mend 
th£ arm that ardent fans damaged in their hectic 
desire to flaunt admiration. 

Is this a civilized country? I think even canni- 
bals leave the injured alone. I cannot understand 
how fans can emote admiration to the point of 
hysteria. Who has forgotten the black mark placed 
against movie fans at the late Rudolph Valentino's 
funeral? That was unforgivable behavior! 

Considering the popularity reaped recently by 
Robert Taylor, he had better look out for both his 
legs . . . and I'd suggest that they put Shirley 
Temple into a cage to protect her from the destruc- 
tive and animalistic "adoration" of their fans. 
Respectfully yours,

He-Men to Pennsylvania 

Dear Editor: 

I'm just about convinced that the movie pro- 
ducers are trying to glorify our heroes like Zieg- 
feld glorified the American girl! 

I really admire Franchot Tone and Robert Tay- 
lor very much, but like many others, I am becoming 
very disgusted with the way in which they were 
"made up" to look like boy dolls in motion pic- 
tures. Can't something be done to change all this? 

I'm making this plea in the hope that in the 
future we girls shall see real, masculine heroes in 
our pictures — and not contestants for the most beau- 
tiful and glamorous actor of 1936-1937. 
Yours sincerely, 

Kitty Archibald.

With a Zoom and a Thump 




Aren't they lovely, these comely dancers! You'd hardly know that the gents are really gridiron 
stars! Coast conference rules won't let us identify them, except to say they are fighting Trojans 
of the University of Southern California, the Far West's outstanding football team. The girls are 
Katharine Snell, Larry Lane, Helene Mohler and Paula de Cardo. It's a scene for Paramount's 

Rose Bowl 

Douglas in The Gorgeous Hussy. Just because he 
is a new and popular star, th;:y plop him into every 

picture they produce regardless of the fact that 

fans tire of seeing too much of any one player! 
There are too many Robert Taylor pictures all at 
once, and not enough Melvyn Douglas roles. Robert 
Taylor went to the top with a "zoom," and will go 
down to the bottom of the ladder with a "thump," 
while Melvyn Douglas' journey will be slow but

lie! I refer to the billing of that grand picture, 
The Gorgeous Hussy. As I have always been under 
the impression that the stars' names which were 
given top billing are always the principals of the 
story, I have been at a loss ever since I saw this 
picture to know why Bob Taylor received top billing. 
I know there are a lot of pros and cons whenever 
this gentleman's name is mentioned. I don't think 
it was fair to the real male star of this vehicle, 
Lionel Barrymore, or to the public — to bill this 
picture in this manner. Everyone knows that "Bob" 
is a big drawing card, and that his name is used 
whenever possible, but I don't think top billing in 
this picture was due him. 

I have enjoyed this good-looking ->'Oung- man's 
performances in Magnificent Obsession and Small 
Town Girl very much. I should like to see more 
of him in pictures — but PLEASE don't tire the 
public of him by giving him undeserved publicity!

Miss Joan Crawford really drew "top 
billing" in The Gorgeous Hussy, with Mr. 
Taylor billed as her co-star. The names 
of Lionel Barrymore, Franchot Tone, Mel- 
vyn Douglas and James Stewart were also 
prominently mentioned. It is not infre- 
quent that audiences disagree as to who 
is the real drawing card for certain pic- 
tures. — The Editor. 

He's Back Again! 

Dear Editor: 

The November issue featuring Jeanette Mac- 
Donald as its cover subject was truly lovely. How 
about a cover of Claudette Colbert as she appears 
in Maid of Salem? 

Really, I'm not kidding — my name actually is — 
A. Reeder. 

Hollywood Magazine printed in the 
November issue (p. 17) a letter from "A. 
Reeder, Martinez, Calif." with the fol- 
lowing comment: "To Mr. A. Reeder (he's 
kidding us with that alias), our thanks." 
Hollywood's editor, willing to believe 
almost anything, accepts Mr. Reeder's 
claim, conscious of the fact that a Holly- 
wood real estate firm goes by the name of 
Read and Wright, an attorney by the name 
of Peacemaker, a Hollywood dentist by 
the name of Dr. Kruel. — The Editor. 


Joan Really Real! 

Dear Editor: 

Is there really such a person as Joan Crawford, 
or is she merely a gorgeous shadow of the silver 
screen, a figment of the imagination? Can anyone 
so lovely, so altogether beautiful and warmly allur- 
ing be real? 

Miss Crawford has been my favorite actress for 
several years, and I have seen every one of her pic- 
tures possible. I have never been disappointed in 
her portrayals; her vivid characterizations stand 
forth as a monument to the little salesgirl, Lucille 
LaSeur, who has risen to fame and popularity in the 
past few years. 

Now that the picture-going public has seen what 
an ideal team she and Robert Taylor make, I do 
sincerely hope we shall see them together in a 
modern film. They were excellently cast in The 
Gorgeous Hussy*. 

Sincerely yours, 

Miss Melva Morsberger,

Getting Down to Business 

Dear Editor: 

You done asked f3r it, h^ney chile, now you got 
to take it! I'm rarin' to go! It's the Martin per- 
son's letter which upset me this way. I'm grateful 
for this opportunity to express my opinion — not 
only about Joan Crawford, but about all stars. 

I think it is a fan's privilege to criticize the stars* 
performances on the screen, their clothes, the make- 
up they wear — but this privilege should exist only 
where it concerns screen appearances. 

From the time a star goes home from the studio 
until the time when he reports to work again, I 
honestly believe it is none of the public's business 
what he does! If Joan Crawford wishes to pick 
raisins out of bread, that's her business. If Garbo 
wishes to be alone — that is certainly her own bust- 

f Gene Raymond wishes to 
aid that's his business, but 

As an afterthought-

Colorful Comments 

Dear Editor: 

The motion picture industry has suddenly dis- 
covered a better way to make color pictures! It 
looks as though color will soon play a large part 
in filmdom! Everyone knows this, and nine-tenths 
of the people are pleased. That's all very fine, and 
I'm glad, too, but I have a point to bring up that 
I'll wager the majority of people are forgetting. 
What is color really going to do to our stars? 

For those of the stars who can handle this new 
development — for those who film as well or better 
in color than they did in black and white — for them, 
let's have color! But for those of our favorites 
who do not film well in color — keep them the way 



Try Your Luck - and Be Lucky Ever After ! 

The Right Shade of Face Powder Will 
Add the Final Touch to Your Personality 

All women and girls make up. But plenty of 
them need to be made over! 

Yes, positively. They're hiding the loveliness 
Nature gave them and quenching the vital 
spark of personality with a drab, dull, dead 
shade of face powder. 

What they need is a shade that flatters, that 
gives them the young, alive, vivid look that 
never fails to attract. 

How sure are you that you're using the 
right shade of face powder? Even if you think 
you're satisfied — there may be another shade 
that would create a "you" no one has ever 
seen before! 

You're An Individual, Not A Type! 

Don't be old-fashioned and choose your shade 
by type or coloring. You aren't a type. You're 
yourself and nobody else. Choose 
your shade according to which is 
most becoming to you, before your 
own mirror. And the only way to do 
this intelligently is to try on all five 
Basic Shades, one after the other. 

So new— so true is this new way 
of finding your true shade that I offer 
to prove every word at my expense. 
I will, therefore, send you all five 
shades of my Lady Esther Face 
Powder free of charge and obliga- 

tion. When you get the five shades, try all five 
on. Don't think that your choice must be con- 
fined to any one or two shades. As I say, try on 
all five. Maybe the very shade you think least 
suited to you is really your most becoming, 
your most flattering. 

Stays On For 4 Hours 

When you make the shade test of Lady Esther 
Face Powder, I want you to notice, too, how 
smooth this face powder is — how evenly it 
goes on and how long it holds. By actual test, 
you will find this face powder adheres for four 
hours or more without getting shiny. 

Write today for all five shades of Lady 
Esther Face Powder which I offer free. With 
the five shades of Lady Esther Face Powder 
I will also send you a 7-days' tube of Lady 
Esther Face Cream. The coupon brings both 
the powder and cream.

Colman presents th 


piquancy, a new delight in

cores in one totally different,

day. Most amazing of all to my mind, Spencer 
Tracy follows the dramatic intensity of Fury with 
the quiet restraint of his Father Tim in San Fran- 
It must have taken genuine courage for these 
players to attempt roles so radically different from 
their usual characterizations — and I say more power 
to them — and to others with similar breadth of 
vision. They've given us pleasure which would 
probably have been less keen had others, perhaps 
at first glance better suited to the parts, been the 
ones to portray them.

Every star hopes for a change in role 
occasionally, and in most cases fear what 
is known in Hollywood as "typing." Many 
fans learn to know certain stars in certain 
roles — and resent their being cast in any- 
thing else. — The Editor. 

Second Fiddle to Shirley? 

Dear Editor: 

I have followed Rochelle Hudson's career for a 
number of years. About four years ago, everyone 
said "Watch Rochelle! She is really going places!" 
The same thing is still being said. She does have 
talent, ambition and everything required to be a 
motion picture star. Why don't the authorities 
give her a break ? She receives only minor, sec- 
ondary roles, usually playing second fiddle to Irvin 
S. Cobb, W. C. Fields, even little Shirley Temple. 
Why hold a girl down who so obviously is capable 
of doing really great things? 

Sincerely yours, 

Jean Mohr,

Backing the Background 

Dear Editor: 

Have you ever stopped to think what an im- 
portant part the skillful musical interpretations and 
incidental music plays in the making of a successful 

Many a slow scene can be enlivened by a back- 
ground of proper incidental music. Likewise, an 
exciting scene can be made even more exciting by 
strains of appropriate music accompanying the dia- 
logue and actions of the players. A picture without 
suitable background seems noticeably lacking! 

Hats off to Sid Silvers, Herbert Stothart and all 
those other men who add so capably to the success 
of a picture.

Raising an Eyebrow! 

Dear Editor: 

I was indeed sorry to hear that Marlene Dietrich, 
instead of Merle Oberon. was to be starred in The 
Garden of Allah. Dietrich undoubtedly will give 

a splendid performance critics credit her with 

such — but I'm not so anxious to see the picture as 
I should have been had Merle Oberon been chosen 

Ann Sheridan, attractive Texas redhead, lilces 

her sunshine summer or winter! And if it gels 

too warm, she uncoils the garden hose which 

forms her bed and takes a shower! 

for the role. My reason? Probably the silliest, 
most unfounded one which you could imagine. It*s 
all a matter of eyebrows! 

Somehow, a person having an exaggerated line 
instead of a natural eyebrow line always reminds me 
of a gum-cracking, frizzy-haired nitwit. Domini, 
of the Garden of Allah, is decidedly not that type. 
Dietrich isn't really that type either, and I feel 
sure she would appeal to many more of our movie- 
goers if her eyebrows were natural.

Them's Fighting Words 

In HOLLYWOOD Magazine I read an artHe 
on Gable as a prize-fighter. It stated that Mr. Gable 
learned much about the sport and had been offered 

-as that 
of his 

550,000.00 to go in the ring with Max B 
funny! The reason he didn't take the offer 
he didn't want that football moustache 
smashed all over his mug. 

My advice to Mr. Gable is this: "Before you go 
to fighting with Baer or anybody else, see quite a 
bit more of Carole Lombard if you want to see her 
other than in a hospital!

Muss 'Em Up, Clark 

Dear Editor: 

I know I am braving the wrath of a million fem- 
inine fans when I write you that I believe Clark 
Gable is definitely miscast as a "straight" leading 
man. The natural charm of the boy from Cadiz, 
Ohio, who has become internationally famous, has

been gradually polished away in the effort to make 
him a matinee idol. His talents are, in my opinion, 
confined to hard-boiled roles. Irregardless of how 
dapper and suave he attempts to be, he will always 
prove a poor substitute for Leslie Howard, Herbert 
Marshall or Fredric March. 

We want plenty of Gable but let's have him in 

the rough!

Speaking in Superlatives 

Dear Editor: 

After seeing Romeo and Juliet last evening, I can- 
not but sit down and express to Metro-Goldwyn- 
Mayer my deep appreciation. This masterpiece 
which has been thrilling the world for centuries — 
and will undoubtedly live for countless centuries 
to come has been so superbly filmed, the charac- 
ters so excellently portrayed, the action so real and 
its emotions so tender that one feels as though he 
were actually living in the time of these ageless 

The splendid acting of Norma Shearer, Leslie 
Howard, John Barrymore and others must be seen 
to be appreciated, and once seen it cannot be for- 

Forgive me if I speak in superlatives, but one 
cannot speak otherwise of such a film!

Keeping One Jump Ahead 

Dear Editor : 

None of us enjoys being in a crowd which is 
"talking over his head." As the conversation at 
sometime during the day or evening usually turns 
to Hollywood, its stars, pictures and gossip, I make 
it a point to be the first one in my home town to 
read the new HOLLYWOOD Magazine. I feel 
that in keeping up with HOLLYWOOD, I'm 
learning all the very latest movieland news.

Are Fans Match-Makers? 

Dear Editor: 

Wouldn't it be nice if the fans could marry *'off" 
their favorite film stars as they please? For exam- 
ple: Jean Harlow to Clark Gable, William Powell 
to Myrna Loy or again to Carole Lombard, Ginger 
Rogers to Fred Astaire, Nelson Eddy to Jeanette 
MacDonald — and so on down the line. However, 
I daresay such an arrangement would hardly appeal 
to the stars themselves. Jean Harlow has eyes 
only for William Powell, and Myrna Loy loves her 
husband, Arthur Hornblow, Jr. That's the way it 
goes with all the stars! They never marry their 
fans' idea of a perfect husband or wife. Too bad! 
Very truly yours.

Miss Northam is undoubtedly right in 
assuming that film celebrities would 
prefer to choose their own mates. The

Win Preston Foster'sTennis Racquets 

Preston Foster, already a popular RKO star, adds much to his laurels in the new 
picture soon to be released, The Plough and the Stars 

Here's a Prize worth trying for! Pres- 
ton Foster, the RKO star who will 
soon appear in the classic picture, 
The Plough and the Stars, offers this 
month to some reader of Hollywood Mag- 
azine a set of tennis racquets, purchased 
by himself just for the lucky winner! 

The valuable prize will go to the person 
who writes the most interesting and pro- 
vocative letter to this magazine. That's 
all there is to it — a letter and nothing 
more! And if you don't succeed in win- 
ning this particular prize, you still stand 
a good chance of being one of many 
readers who will be paid a dollar apiece 
for any letter printed in this magazine. 

Hollywood Magazine wants stimulat- 
ing, interesting letters for its Our Readers 
Write department. And to accomplish 
this purpose it lends zest to the competi- 
tion by joining with the producers of The 
Plough and the Stars in offering prizes. 

You will enjoy Preston Foster in this 
amazing RKO picture just as much as you 
did in The Informer. As a matter of fact, 
Plough and the Stars is also a story of the 
Irish revolution, but it deals with the 
affair with an entirely different outlook, 
and is replete with excitement. 

Write your letter about anything con- 

cerning the film world. Perhaps there is 
something — or someone — you would like 
particularly to see on the screen. Maybe 
you have an honest criticism — good or bad 
— of this magazine. Whatever it is that 
you want to say, the important thing is to 
sit down and write that letter now! 

The rules are simple: 

1. Write your letter either in pen and 
ink or on the typewriter. Legibility, neat- 
ness and conciseness count. 

2. Make your letter brief. There is no 
set length to Hollywood's letters, but the 
editor reserves the right to strike out or 
edit portions deemed immaterial or un- 
necessary. Brief letters, well written, win 
more favorable consideration. You can 
say it on a penny post card if you wish. 

3. Make your letter interesting. Will 
it lend itself to comments from the editor? 
Are there two sides to what you have to 
say? Is it really worth saying? These 
are tests that will improve your letter. 

4. Address your letter to Hollywood 
Magazine, Preston Foster Contest, 7046 
Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, Calif. It 
must arrive here not later than Jan- 
uary 10.

Flood Tide For 
Spencer Tracy 

Hollywood, forever whimsical in its 
"breaks," is starring an actor who 
one year and a half ago was all set 
to take a train out of town and forget the 

Spencer Tracy had long been recog- 
nized as a good actor. But he had never 
been "box office." Behind him were only 
mediocre pictures and flops. He was not 
a pretty boy. He was not a great lover. 
He was a man's man and a character actor 
who had spent four years at the old Fox 
studios trying to carry on from The Last 
Mile, Broadway hit which landed him in 

Now he has reached the top. He is so 
good his studio has just given him a new 
and more lucrative contract six months 
before expiration of his old one! But 
behind his climb to the top is a saga of 
tragedy and heartbreak, and of a stout 
heart which fought through trying times. 
Helping to put him over when the going 
was toughest was his wife, the former 

Libeled Lady elevated permanently Spencer 
Tracy to Jean Harlow's star realm, and brought 
him a contract renewal far ahead of schedule! 

Louise Treadwell of the New York stage. 
They are enjoying one of Hollywood's 
mythical happy marriages, a bond which 
has been triple-sealed by the vicissitudes 
of twelve long years. 

Blow After Blow 

Tracy is the emotional, serious type who 
really gets "down in the dumps" when 
the breaks come hard. In the early years 
it was all struggle. Many is the time he 
would have forgotten his first love, the 
stage, had not his young bride insisted 
that he keep trying. Her willingness to 
wear the same dress every day and smile 
when she was hungry was the inspiration 
which carried him through that incuba- 
tion period of his acting career. 

He was knocked around from Cincinnati 

Coclcy Spencer Tracy! That's the usual im- 
pression he gives you, but this startling insight 
into the star's career will change that thought! 

to Pittsburg to Milwaukee to New York. 
When the first baby was coming he did 
not have a steady job. Tracy's spirit was 
almost broken when he learned for the 
first time that his little Johnny, now a 
brilliant lad of ten years, was deaf. 

He lost his grip for a spell in Milwaukee 
when he deserted his calling to sell pianos. 
He was saved for the profession by an 
offer from his old stock company to return 
for a doubled figure. 

His powerful portrayal of the Killer 
Mears role in The Last Mile on Broadway 
in 1930 attracted the attention of Holly- 
wood. Fox signed him on six weeks leave 
from the Broadway producers to feature 
him in Up the River. This comedy riot 
won him a long-term contract with 

He had hated Hollywood at first, until 
he saw it as the land of his opportunity. 
Now that things were coming his way he 
sincerely plunged himself into the busi- 
ness of becoming a good actor. Acting in 
itself, with the idea of wrapping up the 
character and presenting the character 
played rather than the ego of the man 
playing it, has always been Tracy's goal. 

Four Years to Nowhere 

There followed a listless quadrennium. 
He appeared in big pictures, billed with 
such names as Joan Bennett, Jean Har- 
low, Sally Eilers, Sidney Fox and El 
Brendel. Yet his pictures were charac- 
terized as mediocrities or flops. Holly- 
wood's encyclopedic publicity machines 
passed him by with puny paragraphs. He 
was discouraged. 

But he had made friends. His good 
nature, sincerity and realness had brought 
him close to Darryl Zanuck, Walter 
Wanger, Frank Borzage and others. He

had started Clark Gable on his career by 
introducing him to The Last Mile road 

Gable's Killer Mears portrayal on foot- 
boards in Los Angeles started him in pic- 
tures. Now Gable says he would "go to 
Hell for Tracy." 

And Tracy was a very close friend of 
Will Rogers. They worked at the same 
studio, lunched together daily, played polo 
together. Rogers had once said, "Tracy 
is the swellest fellow in Hollywood." 
Tracy says today that the biggest thing 
he has taken from Hollywood was his 
friendship with Will Rogers. 

Tempted to Leave 

There was much to hold Tracy here, yet 
he was tempted to leave. "There must be 
some way to crash this town yet," Tracy 
was muttering eighteen months ago. There 

His brother, Carol, was Spenc's busi- 
ness manager. One evening they were 
having what Tracy expected to be a 
gloomy bull session. He felt more encour- 
aged when he learned two other studios 
had made offers. The brothers decided 
that what was needed must be a change 
of location. 

After talking it over they decided to 
approach Benny Thau, an M-G-M execu- 

In Libeled Lady Tracy proves a good comedian, 
despite his reputation for straight hard-boiled 
roles. You'll pardon ihe informal attire — 
this was just one of the scenes in the picture 
that brought the audience close to hysterics 

tive. Thau invited them to call on him 
that same evening. 

In two hours a contract had been drawn 
up and signed. 

Although the public had not yet paid 
to Spencer Tracy the tribute due him for 
his acting ability, the players associated 
with him in his work were awake to the 
potentialities in this man. Myrna Loy 
was delighted to have him play in her 
Whipsaw; Jean Harlow, who has often 
said, "I wish I could act as well as Tracy," 
was overjoyed when she learned he was

Why Barrymore 
Married Elaine! 

Hollywood Has Another Great Prob- 
lem off its chest at last. 
It took a lot of publicity to do it, 
but Caliban finally got his Ariel — or vice 

Things looked pretty black indeed when 
Elaine Barrie, after following John Barry - 
more to California, finally packed her 
things again and returned East with a 
stock company intent upon presenting its 
special version of Petrified Forest to the 
drama-starved world. 

On that dismal occasion Elaine, accord- 
ing to reporters, flung these words oyer 
her fast-disappearing shoulder: 

"Phooey on love. I figured it was either 
John or my career. I figured I was a 
young girl with a future ahead of me. 
I figured John was only a silvery sunset." 

The "silvery sunset," however, was only 
a prelude to a golden dawn. For scarcely 
had Elaine presented her talents on the 
East coast when John, who had up to this 
moment remained discreetly silent, tele- 
phoned her and dictated a rush elope- 

Just to prove she had been kidding the 
reporters, Elaine bolted out of the theatre, 
gathered up her fond parents in a bundle, 
and hustled to a transcontinental airliner. 

Oh, rosy dawn of life! Oh, blessed Cali- 

Arriving in Hollywood, Elaine met 
genial John and brooked no delays. 
Climbing aboard another airplane they 
staged a midnight "elopement" with 
Papa and Momma (Louis Jacobs), with 
all the publicized secrecy a pliable press 
could give them on such short notice. To 
their everlasting credit, let it be said that 
the journalistic world arose to the de- 
mands of the occasion and opened up 
hundreds of front pages for a last minute 

The Ceremony Takes Place 

Down in Yuma they were blended by 
the town's "marrying justice," Judge 
Earl A. Freeman, who basked and beamed 
in the glory of the occasion. Then the 
couple climbed aboard a train for Holly- 
wood, sat up all night because no sleeping 
accommodations were available. 

Why did they get married, you ask? 
From Elaine's standpoint, a Hollywood 
wag offers a neat solution. It wasn't that 
Elaine liked Barrie less, but Barrymore! 

But seriously, John Barrymore had 
plenty of reasons for marrying, even if 
he doesn't care to discuss them in detail. 
In the first place, for months he has been 
lonesome — lost without anyone else in his 
home. Not that he has remained in soli- 
tude since the failure of his last marriage 
— a Barrymore never sulks in a corner. 
John, as if denying his advancing age, 
moved around with alacrity from coast 
to coast. But all the same, he was lone- 

Secondly, a man of Barrymore's dis- 
position—he is forever revolting against 
the established order of things — suggests 
the advisability of a balance wheel, which 

Just an old fashioned marriage, a la tintype! Elaine and John Barrymore posed for this 
startling photo immediately upon arriving in Hollywood after their marriage 

Elaine has provided and probably will 
continue to provide. 

Again, Barrymore is an incurable ro- 
manticist. If life should ever cease to 
be glamorous to him, if his romantic eyes 
should ever stop admiring a beautiful 
woman, all would be lost. And Elaine 
quite apparently makes his gallant heart 
beat faster when she rests her provocative 
glance on him. 

But back to the circumstances of their 
elopement. . . . 

Their homecoming was not all it might 
have been. 

Elaine was still a trifle airsick, but 
blushing happily beneath her make-up. 
The early morning dawn was far from 
rosy, and their reception committee was 
a throng of shivering, weary reporters 
and cameramen. The train harmoniously 
groaned to a stop at the Southern Pacific 

Elaine hopped off with a benevolent 
smile. Barrymore, forever the actor, 
seemed just a trifle uncertain what role 
he should assume. He solved it by as- 

suming none. His classic nose twitched 
against the unromantic atmosphere per- 
meating a railroad station. Establishing 
a formal note of glumness, he posed for 
pictures with the bride and then ran for 
the warmth of a spot indoors. 

Still the press waited breathlessly for 
a great statement to give the world. It 
finally came thusly: 

"Hah! I put over a fast one, didn't I?" 

This was a question which no one cared 
to dispute. And then: 

"This was all arranged by long distance 
telephone (Elaine speaking now) and we 
perfected our plans just as soon as John's 
divorce from Dolores Costello became 
final. When the ceremony finally took 
place, everything seemed enveloped in a 
rosy haze. My golden dream had come 
true! We were married at last!" 

Mother Jacobs flashed a triumphant 
smile for the press. 

"Aren't they darling!" she barely whis- 
pered, beaming all the while. "Isn't it so 
wonderful they are happy!"

I'm A Fugitive From The Quints! 


Norman Taurog 

(The director of Skippy, Huckleberry 
Finn, Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch 
and other childhood epics writes a humor- 
ous, colorful, interesting story of his ex- 
periences with the Dionne Quintuplets 
when he directed them recently in Re- 
union, a 20th Century-Fox picture. — The 

Darryl Zanuck said to me on the day 
I was boarding a train in Hollywood 
bound for the little town of Callen- 
dar, Ontario, Canada, and the Dionne 
Quintuplets, "Norman, don't try to make 
them act. Just photograph what they can 
do. That's all I ask of you." And, to 
this day I'm not sure whether I detected 
a twinkle in his eye or not. At any rate, 
he had no need to worry. From the day 
I arrived in the little Canadian town. I 
was a fugitive from the Quints. 

Picture this scene: 

Seventeen good men and true — husky, 
healthy, two-fisted guys — hiding like 
quail behind the bushes that dotted the 
grounds of the location in a little Canadian 

We were sophisticated, hard-shelled 
motion picture men from Hollywood, ac- 
customed to all sorts of unusual exper- 
iences, and usually caring not a whoop 
what happened, come hell and high 

But, I'll have to admit we hid behind 
the bushes because we were scared! 

Scared of what? Well, we were fright- 
ened stiff of five little toddling baby girls 
who didn't give a whoop who we were nor 
why we were there. 

Suddenly came a loud "s-s-s-sh!" from 
the farthest outpost. 

"The Quints are coming!" 

Behind our various bushes the rest of 
us shushed one another, and endeavored 
to keep well hidden. (We were earnestly 
trying to get some "shots" of the Dionne 
Quintuplets at their natural play.) 

"The Quints are coming!" (This call 
from the second outpost.) 

I crouched with the cameraman behind 
the biggest bush from which we hoped to 
get our scenes. We hoped and prayed, for 
the little minxes had been hard to get. 

"The Quints are coming!" 


"T-H-E Q-U-I-N-T-S A-R-E C-O-M- 
I-N-G!'' ( 

This "shushed" call rising in inflection 
until it seemed to roar in one's ears will 
stay with me long after the Quints are 
grown-up young ladies. 

It means only one thing. When the 
quints do appear, you've got to work fast 
and use every fleeting moment. And you 
mustn't upset them in any way. 

So, as they came into view, we turned 
the cameras loose and shot whatever hap- 
pened. And we came back with some 
rare stuff! 


© 20th Century-Fox 
It's not all a barrel of fun directing the quints in 20th Century-Fox's new film, Reunion, but 
Director Norman Taurog and Actress Dorothy Peterson are having a gay time here with little 
Emelie and her toy dog. All the quints are normal, happy youngsters 

We have had some very funny experi- 
ences making motion pictures, and I have 
enjoyed more than my share in the 
last decade, possibly because I have 
directed more kid pictures than most 

After carefully studying and directing 
widely-contrasting childish temperaments 
such as Jackie Cooper and Jackie Searle 
in Skippy and Sooky, Junior Durkin in 
Huckleberry Finn, and a raft of kids — 
Edith Fellows, Virginia Weidler, Car- 
menita Johnson, Jimmy Butler and George 
Breakston, not to mention Bill Fields' 
"mortal enemy," Baby LeRoy — I felt that 
I could easily qualify as an expert in child 

"Live and learn" is a darned good old 

To this day, now that the picture is com- 
pleted, I'm not honestly sure whether 
I directed the Dionne Quintuplets, or 
whether they directed me. 

We were hiding behind the bushes that 
particular day because we knew that any 
one of the five little Canadian princesses 
royal might happen to change her mind 
in the fraction of a second, disappear — 
and then where would our scene be? We 
knew, for example, that we only had one 
hour a day to film the Quints, and I can 
assure you that every fleeting second was 
exceedingly precious to us.

The Man Who Acts With His Voice! 

Most Fascinating-To-Watch thing 
about Don Ameche is that amazing 
"slow-take" personality of his . . . 

It's got Hollywood baffled, because this 
sort of personality isn't at all the thing 
that's supposed to go with movie stardom. 

He's no Clark Gable, or Bob Taylor, 
this new screen sensation from the radio 
world. He doesn't kayo you with one of 
those reach-out-and-smack-you-down 
personalities. Roomfuls of people don't 
stop talking when he enters. Girls don't 
flock around him the moment he appears. 

"As a matter of fact," a friend of his 
sums him up, "He's the kind of guy you 
don't remember meeting the first time . . ." 

But then he sneaks up on you. Subtly, 
that "slow-take" personality goes to work 
and moves in on you. And before you 
know it, you're wondering how you ever 
got along at all before you'd met him. 
Suddenly, you find you like him better 
than a dozen or so of the fellows you 
thought you were crazy about. You've 
become a Don Ameche fan — and you begin 
to understand how and why this young 
son of an Italian saloonkeeper is going 
places in a big way in movies. 

In his newest picture, One in o Million, Don 

Ameche plays the love interest with Sonja 

Henie, famous ice skater 

You know him now as the dark-haired 
young man in Ramona, or as the young 
doctor who nearly ran away with Ladies 
in Love, or as a couple of brothers (he 
played both roles) in Sins of Man. Or 
maybe you just know him as the new 
movie find who came out of Darryl 
Zanuck's radio loudspeaker one day when 
Darryl, that star-finding boss of 20th Cen- 
tury-Fox, was hard up for a leading man. 

That is, Don's voice came out. But that 
was enough. It got him the break he 
needed. And now Don is headed for huge 
things on the screen. And because you'll 
soon be raving about him, if you aren't 
already, I'm going to tell you something 
about his life — and a lot of other things 
about him that you won't read in any of 
those other biographies that'll soon be 
filling the newspapers and magazines 
about him. 

As I mentioned, he's the son of a saloon- 
keeper. It's characteristic of Don that he 
doesn't try to hide the fact. He doesn't 


Presenting to you the young radio personality, Don Ameche, whose overnight 
career with 20th Century-Fox has sent him flying to the top in popular appeal 

see why he should. "For 38 years, my dad 
was the best saloonkeeper in Kenosha, 
Wisconsin," says Don, "and no man ever 
left his saloon drunk, and that, I think, 
gives him one leg on fame." 

From a Large Family 

Papa and Mama Ameche had eight chil- 
dren. Don was one of them. He wasn't 
named Don — he was christened Dominick 
Felix Ameche. But all that was too much 
for his playmates. They cut it down to 
"Don." "Don" was easier to say, so "Don" 
it became. Right now, the metamorphosis 
of the name's being carried to the end of 
the cycle by Director Sid Lanfield, who's 
bossing Ameche in One in a Million. Sid. 
who does nutty things for no reason at 
all, is calling him "Donald." . Ameche 
doesn't mind. As a matter of fact, he 
doesn't mind anything, very much. But 
that's getting ahead of the story . . . 

Eight children, planning their future 
lives, are liable to get a bit confusing. 
Don, as a youngster, thought he'd like to 
become a lawyer. He studied law a bit, 
here and there, but never got very far at 
it. He got further in school dramatics, 
instead, and one day a player in a stock 
company in Madison, Wisconsin, got hurt 
and the head of the outfit had to go to the 
college drama club for help. He got Don, 
who learned the injured actor's role be- 
tween lunch and matinee time and made 
a hit. That ended young Ameche's law 
career and started his professional career 

The Turn in the Road 

He had the usual ups and downs of 
struggling actors. He did all the usual 
things — stuck cardboard soles in his shoes 
when the leather wore out, and ate beans 
at a nickel a plate for days on end, the 
while he aspired. But aspirations didn't 

get anywhere until Lady Luck led him 
into a place where they were giving radio 
auditions. That was the big turning point 
in his life. 

For the past six years, as a result, you've 
been getting acquainted with Don, if 
you're any sort of • dial-twiddler at all. 
You've heard that baritone of his on the 
Grand Hotel program, in Betty and Bob 
— and right now, you're hearing it in the 
First Nighter broadcasts. Maybe you're 
one of the thousands of fans whose fan- 
mail has put Don Ameche's name at the 
head of the list of radio favorites. 

All this time, things were getting 
tougher and tougher in Hollywood in the 
leading-man situation. Producers were 
tearing their hair, looking for new Gables 
and Taylors and Flynns. Among them 
was Zanuck, who is a radio fan. 

One night, Zanuck heard a voice in a 
radio program. It hit him hard. It was 
Don Ameche's voice. Don's voice has hit 
lots of people hard, but all it ever got him 
up to then were a lot of fan-letters and a 
good radio salary. This time, it got him to 

"If he isn't too bad-looking, we can use 
him," said Zanuck. Now, Ameche is no 
collar-advertisement, but he's not bad- 
looking. Zanuck decided to use him. 
Well, you know the rest, already, if you're 
a movie fan — and if you're not, you won't 
be reading this story about Don any- 

Now as for the man Ameche, himself — 

He's not spectacular. A lot of people 
are going to have trouble writing about 
him, because he isn't what they call "good 
copy." He doesn't raise snakes, or go 
bathing in neighbors' swimming pools, or 
get chased across the nation by an 
Ariel, or get divorces or scandals or 
things . . .

call of the South Sea islands is greater 
than any other thing in the world. To 
them the Song of the Islands is more than 
a beautiful tune, a romantic interlude. It 
is a call to adventure in unknown places, 
an urge to move restless feet toward the 
mystery of antiquity, a willingness to 
dare uncharted reefs for the beckoning 
things beyond. 

Errol Flynn is one of these souls, for- 
ever restless, forever in the pursuit of 
adventure. For him there is no glamour 
in the present, not even in glamorous 
Hollywood. The restless, haunting look 
you see in his eyes is not from clever 
acting. The Errol Flynn of the screen is 
Errol himself, a man of the far horizons 
who refuses to linger long in one place. 
And lately he has heard the call of distant 

Errol was just completing work on 
Another Dawn for Warner Brothers when 
we talked with him about the mysteries 
of Tahiti, and other islands so remote that 
they remain nameless to this day. 

"I guess the South Seas would lure most 
anyone," he told us, pacing up and down 
the sound stage floor as the cameraman 
worked for new shooting angles. "I don't 
think I'm much different from anyone 
else. We'd all go down there if we could. 
I guess the only difference is that I am 
going just as soon as I wind up this pic- 

And there the difference is, as plain a 
fact as you could ask for. The lure of big 
money as a dashing movie star, the adula- 
tion of fans all over the world, the peace- 
fulness of serene security — these things 
mean nothing at all to Errol Flynn. 

You doubt that? 

Then consider the facts. Errol has been 
in pictures only a brief year. He was 
"discovered" while the studio was testing 
for the lead in Captain Blood. It needed a 
dashing young man full of the spirit of 
adventure. Fate gave Errol that particu- 
lar screen test, and overnight he became 
one of Warner's most triumphant person- 

The studio knew its man all too well. It 

In Charge of the Light Brigade Errol Flynn plays another dashing, adventurous role. Finished 
with this and two other pictures, Flynn is deserting Hollywood. Read why in this article!

deciphered that faraway look in Flynn's 
eyes and sent out an order that might well 
have read like this: 

"Attention all producers: we have a 
marvelous hit in Errol Flynn. But he is 
a natural born adventurer who is hard to 
hold in one spot. Maybe we can keep him 
inside Hollywood for a year, but not much 
longer. Do things fast with him." 

Of course they didn't send out that exact 
order. But it is a fact that Errol, in that 
brief year, completed not only his first 
picture, but leads in the following master- 
pieces: Charge of the Light Brigade, An- 
other Dawn and Green Light. 

All of these pictures are top notch pro- 
ductions. Most stars would consider it 
good fortune to do only one of these in a 
year. With the exception of Green Light. 
all of the films are costume pictures. And 
in Green Light Errol plays the role of 
a doctor who flees misfortune, battles 

spotted fever amid the backwoods rough- 
ness of Montana. So you see he is funda- 
mentally the adventurous type of man in 
all three films. 

Captain Blood made such a hit that they 
ran it many months longer than usual. 
Charge of the Light Brigade's release was 
held up for that reason. Last month we 
previewed the latter picture. It will make 
your masculine or feminine heart pound. 
Adventure is here in copious quantities, 
and romance too. It is another tremen- 
dous Errol Flynn hit. Soon you will be 
raving about the picture, and it seems 
destined for as long a run as Captain 

That means only one thing: it will be 
many months before both Another Dawn 
and Green Light are released to the the- 
aters, and it is during these months that 
Errol will venture into the South Seas to

Irene Dunne: A 
"Lady" No Longer 

Millenniums Come and go in Holly- 
wood. Small millenniums, of course, 
but eminently important just the 
same. This month a shocking millennium 
has come for Irene Dunne. One that 
pleases her no end. She isn't a lady any- 
more . . . 

For years, ever since 
she made such a tre- 
mendous hit in Cimar- 
ron, Irene has had to 
endure the title of Hol- 
lywood's Number One 
Lady. That is a pretty 
serious responsibility. 

Irene has borne it 
bravely enough, despite 
the fact that she ob- 
viously disliked such 
an all-inclusive label. 
But the producers, in- 
stead of helping her shed it, have con- 
tinued the tradition on through the years, 
clear up to now. 

Showboat started out to preserve her 
reputation, then faltered and gave Irene 
an opportunity to do a blackface number 
and a very unsophisticated galavantin' 
dance. Partly by contrast to her usually 
serene self and partly by way of being 
different, lovely Miss Dunne put audiences 
the world over into hysterics with this 
cute number. 

And that's partly what brought about 
the millennium. 

"After making Showboat, I ran off to 
Europe," Irene explained one day while 
trying to give an interview and supervise

woman's character by way of preparing 
myself for a picture I will do soon.* I

hoping this comedy idea would blow over 
before my return. 

"That was a very poor guess. Columbia 
was more than ever determined that I 
should do Theodora Goes Wild with 
Richard Boleslawski directing." 

The shuffle dance in Showboat indeed 
had proved a boomerang. It brought 
about Irene's own personal millennium, 
and within a fortnight she was com- 
mencing her first assignment as a com- 
edienne. It was her job to start out as a 
respectable small town girl (in a very 
narrow community!) and then turn loose 
with a spree in New York. 

Irene was not too sure of herself when 
she started out. She was lucky in being

Florence Rice: 

Chip off the Old Block 

Florence Rice, besides being beautiful, 
is an unusual girl. She is a swell 
athlete with a fine sense of sportsman- 
ship, something she learned from her 
famous father, Grantland Rice. She is 
also — and now we're telling a secret — an 
ex-champion prize-fighter! 

It was at the tender age of eight that 
Florence rolled up her sleeves and won 
the championship of her class in school. 
Let's listen to her own simple confession, 
made after due coaxing: 

"The fight," smiled the M-G-M player, 
"was literally thrust upon me. I came on 
the school yard one morning to find a boy 
in my class twisting the arm of a little girl 
who sat in the same aisle with me. She 
was crying, he was scowling and acting 
the bully — and I was angry. So angry, I 
was challenging him to a fist fight. And 
then, before I knew it, some youngster had 
scampered across the street to his home 
to get his set of boxing gloves. 

"From then on there was no chance to 
make a graceful exit and I was still furious 
enough to fight. The bully put on his 
gloves and so did I. Quite a crowd had 
gathered around by then, yelling their 
encouragement and begging that I step in 
and 'sock him one!' The next thing I 
knew I was flat on my back, madder than 
ever but wondering in a detached way 
how I ever would get up. But I kept on 
asking myself what Dad would say if he 
saw me trying to back out of a tight corner 
without fighting. His 'come back smiling' 
philosophy worked out then as well as it 
ever has since. I got up, swung a girlish 
fist that caught Mr. Youngbully right on 
the nose. 

"The blow was strong enough to bring 
tears, a trace of blood for him and the 
championship for me. The battle was 

Sailing, Sailing 


They can't keep Florence from having a good time — and they don't want to! She's part of 
the sparkle around any production unit. Here she is shown with a famous dog actor 

over right then and there. I was king pin." 
"The paternal influence is as strong as 
ever, then?" we ventured. 

"Stronger," Florence declared emphat- 
ically. "If you can't come back smiling 
in this movie game where competition is 
so fierce, you might as well stay down 
once you're knocked down." 

An Honor She Dodges 

Referring to the paternal influence. 
Florence idolizes her famous Dad and 
scorns those who consider newspaper 
writing second rate. 

She also hates to be known as "Grant- 
land Rice's daughter." 

"I've been strictly on my own ever since 

the night I made my first stage entrance," 
she said soberly. "I've never asked for 
help from Dad to further my career, and 
he's been kind enough and wise enough 
not to offer it; but I did learn the value 
of sportsmanship from him and for that 
I'm deeply grateful." 

"In other words, you practice what he 
preaches. Is that it?" 

"Precisely that. And it's been rather 
hard, too, for girls as a rule don't under-

JANUARY, 1937 


Feature for January 

Carole Lombard Betrays 

Carole Lombard never gave a better 
performance in her life than she did 
as Irene in My Man Godfrey. It was 
an acting job born of feeling, sincerity, 
and above all, naturalness. This latter 
quality is the most difficult of all to achieve 
in any screen performance. But Carole 
achieved it by allowing her own person- 
ality to come through, as she had never 
done before. 

She did, literally, betray her real char- 
acter to the public. 

A close friend of Carole's was once 
asked, "What is she really like . . . her 
disposition, her character, I mean?" 

"Well," answered that friend wryly, 
"that all depends on which picture she 
happens to be making at the moment." 

Even Carole had to laugh when she 
heard it, for no one appreciates her own 
plasticity more than she does. Usually 
she is a different person, at least out- 
wardly, with each part that comes along. 
No one at Paramount will forget that 
phoney accent she used off the screen as 
well as on, all during the making of 
The Princess Comes Across. Before that, 
during the production of Hands Across 
the Table, she was strictly the hard-boiled 
manicurist all over the lot, even to the 
simple little uniform-like dresses she 
seemed to get a yen for. And so on and 
on, back, back . . . back to Twentieth 
Century when Carole for a time (and for 
a laugh, if the truth must be known), was 
flouncing around just like that movie's 
version of a movie star. In fact it was 
such an old habit — and such an amusing 
one — that when My Man Godfrey rolled 
along, and Carole went back and forth, 
to and from the studio, without bringing 
home any new accents, mannerisms, or 
gags, her friends grew alarmed. "What's 
the matter? Don't you like your part? 
Isn't it a very strong one? You don't seem 
very much wrapped up in it!" 

"Quite the contrary!" laughed Carole. 
"I'm so much wrapped up in it, that there's 
nothing left over to bring home!" 

Carole Lombard changes personalities with her 

screen roles. Here she Is as she looked two 

years ago while making a picture for Howard 

Hawks — an entirely different personality 


Don't guess twice! This is the madcap Carole 
you saw in My Man Godfrey. In this she really 
gave herself away! Read this amaiing story! 

Similarity to Life 

But still no one realized how much 
Carole was putting into that part, night 
and day, drawing on every clever man- 
nerism, every intonation that she had 
ever seen and heard in girls of Irene's 
type — until the picture was thrown on the 
preview screen. Then they marveled and 
roared and critics applauded with the 
most complimentary adjectives. 

But the amazing thing is that in certain 
parts of the picture many of Carole's 
friends chuckled at the similarity between 
the mad harum-scarum Irene and the 
equally mad harum-scarum Lombard. Of 
course Irene was also very naive, and in 
this respect no two girls could be more 
different — but in Irene's? lighter, giddier 
moments, Carole's friends couldn't help 
saying, "If that isn't Carole all over!" (If 
that isn't Carole as only her friends know 
her, we might add.) 

For example, when the theme of the 
story was made clear in the first reel — 
Irene was to adopt the Forgotten Man, 
Bill Powell, as her protegee — Mitch 
Leison, a director whom Carole calls 
"Pops," leaned over to his companion, 
grinned and chortled, "Get that! Carole 
and her protegees . . . she's crawling 
with them!" 

What Mr. Leison had presented rather 
facetiously and with some slight exagger- 
ation is nevertheless the truth. Carole 
Lombard is always sponsoring somebody 
or something. Not so long ago there was 
Alex, the little colored boy who had 
hitch-hiked all the way from South Caro- 
lina to get a job in the movies, but who 
had wound up carrying George Raft's 
makeup tray instead. 

Carole ran into him one day on the lot 
took one look at his black shining face, his 
very toothsome white grin and started 
laughing. Then when she heard his high- 
cracked voice, his rich southern dialect. 

she took him under sponsorship com- 
pletely. She told everyone how funny he 
was, went around boosting him for a 
movie job, even sent him on dozens of 
fake errands to the front office, "So these 
movie moguls can see for themselves what 
a riot he is." Every morning little Alex 
would come to her dressing room door 
and always he asked the same thing, "Ya 
don't supposin' I could gitcha somethin' 
this mawnin', do ya, Miss Lombard?" and 
then always when this Lady Bountiful 
would speak to him, the very sound of her 
voice sent him into the same jitters. He'd 
back into all the furniture, fall all over 
himself, generally make himself a nui- 
sance. But Carole didn't care. She loved 
it, laughed at him, talked right back at 
him in his own high voice, imitating his 
dialect. And in the end she did get him 
several good jobs. Alex won the start of 
a motion picture career . . . George Raft 
lost a makeup boy. 

Another Experience 

After Alex there was a wardrobe girl 
whom Carole helped to open a dress shop 
of her own. After the wardrobe girl, there 
was her butler Phil, whom Carole urged 
out to see the world. Not because he was 
a poor butler and she wanted to get rid of 
him. Quite the contrary, he was the best 
she ever had. But Phil had confided on 
one occasion that he wanted to see the 
world. It was the desire closest to his 
heart, his greatest ambition. 

A few months after that Carole heard 
of a well-to-do family who wanted a serv- 
ant to tour the world with them. She put 
the proposition up to Phil and arranged 
for him to go. It was a sad parting . . . 
Carole would never find another butler 
like Phil . . . but youth must be served! 

Oh, there were dozens of cases like that. 
Carole is always organizing someone else's 
life and ambitions . . . seems to take just 
as much enthusiasm in the future of others 
as she does in her own. Her present pro- 

Not husband and wife as they once were, but 
leading players in (Jniversal's mad comedy, My 
Man Godfrey. It's hard to tell whether Wil- 
liam Powell or Carole was the wildest, funniest! 



tegee is Margaret Tallichet, a very pretty 
girl from the south, who won a beauty 
contest and was brought to Hollywood to 
get into pictures. But, as is the fate of so 
many beauty winners, she soon found that 
the only job she could get was a secretarial 
one. She was lucky, though, in this re- 
spect . . . she got her job in the publicity 
department of Paramount. Carole saw 
her, thought she had great screen possi- 
bilities, and arranged for her to study with 
the Paramount dramatic coach. Another 
Lombard protegee on the way to fulfilling 
suppressed desires! IRENE and Carole 
are certainly alike on that score. 

Again in the picture, if you will recall, 
IRENE caused no little disturbance by 
riding a cabby's horse into the library one 
night. This scene was not an actual part 
of the picture, but you heard about it the 
morning after. This is something which 
no one would ever put beyond Carole. 
There are no actual records in the police 
department to show that Carole ever did 
this identical trick, but her love for the 
"furred and feathered folk" did bring her 
in close proximity with the Bel Air City 
Fathers not so long ago. 

Carole's Farming 

Carole had just moved into her new Bel 
Air home which she decided to call THE 
FARM because there was an empty 
chicken coop out back, and nailed up a 
sign accordingly. Came her birthday and 
the colored help in the kitchen, Edmund, 
Ellie and Jessie decided, for a laugh, (any- 
one who even works for her gets that way 
too), that they would give her a rooster 
and two hens for a present, named after 
themselves. The fowls had big red rib- 
bons tied about their necks, and were 
cooped up in a box under the breakfast 
table when Carole came down. The 
rooster crowed, the hens clucked, and at 
the same moment three black heads 
shouted "Happy Birthday!" from the 
kitchen door. Carole screamed with 
laughter, told them it was the most won- 
derful present that anyone could have 
thought of, and that even though they had 
been intended as a gag, she was going to 
keep them. "I just love them!" she 
shouted, "And besides — " striking a typi- 
cal IRENE pose number six-and-a-half — 
"Comes the revolution and I want to have 
eggs in my back yard!" And so three fowl 
in search of a coop found one! 

It was then that the trouble began. Ed- 
mund, the rooster, began crowing early 
the next morning — at five-thirty. Carole 
knew it was against the law to keep 
chickens in swanky Bel Air, so she 
promptly got up and invited him in, hoping 
to calm him. 

But Edmund had to have his crow 
anyway, so crowed even more loudly, it 
seemed, from the Lombard window sill. 
It became quite a problem. 

As days went by Carole tried every 
which way to divert him. She even tried 
having all the other animals in to enter- 
tain him. First the two daschunds would 
file in sleepily, then the Pekinese, then the 
cocker spaniel, then the chickens, then 
the cat. They all sat or lolled around 
looking very bored while Carole tried to 
talk them all into the most cozy quiet. 
But it was of no avail; Edmund got so he'd 
even crow from the middle of the living

JANUARY. 1937 

Cool beauty — that's Carole Lombard when she pauses long enough to assert her charms for the 
camera. But Carole is usually too busy to care just how she looks! 


What They're Shooting 

Mirth pictures seemed to predomi- 
nate as we made our usual swing 
about the studios this month to see 
in the making some of the pictures you 
shortly will be seeing at your favorite 

Comedians, we found, were "strutting 
their wares" almost as much between 
scenes as they did for cameras and record- 
ing. For drama, Captains Courageous, 
held our interest, and the ice extrava- 
ganza that will bring Sonja Henie to the 
screen in One in A Million, was a distinct 

Two of the outstanding comedies we 
looked in on are Top of the Town and 
College Holiday. Let's look them over: 

Top Of The Town 

If you can imagine making an important 
song and dance picture with nine come- 
dians cavorting among the lights, micro- 
phone booms and cameras, you have an 
idea of conditions in the elaborate sets 
that housed the shooting of Universal's 
Top of the Town — and a hint of why the 
sets were closed against all comers. 

It took an act of Providence, or some- 
thing, to get us inside the famous Moon- 
beam Room set — which was about a block 
square in size, and, as you'll notice when 
you see the picture, is an artist's idea of 
what the world's most ambitious night 
club will be twenty-five years from now. 
Equipped with everything the most mod- 
ern club of that date could have, includ- 
ing automatic dodads of all kinds, and 
an impressive television recording and 
transmitting set, this layout would have 
held anyone's undivided atention, if it 
hadn't been for the group of comedians 
engaged to keep the picture moving at 
high speed. 

But this gang, led by such sure-fire rib 
splitters as Hugh Herbert, Gregory Ratoff, 

Henry Armetta and Mischa Auer. and 
augmented by the wild stunts of the fa- 
mous stage slapstickers, The Three Sail- 
ors, would take one's eyes off any spec- 
tacle in the world. When they weren't 
gagging before the camera, they were 
cutting up behind it — and their antics car- 
ried them in to other sound stages and all 
over the lot. 

Production screwiness reached an all- 
time height on the Universal lot during 
the shooting of My Man Godfrey, but set 
workers who served on both pictures 
claim that Top of the Town topped even 
that hilarious opus when it came to out- 
and-out, knock - down - and - drag - out - 
comedy, because the range of gags and 
horse-play lying between Ratoff's accent, 
Herbert's screwy ideas, Ella Logan's mim- 
icking and the Three Sailors' clowning in- 
cluded everything from mirth to mayhem, 
and that one never knew whether to ex- 
pect an artistic thrust of wit or a re- 
sounding wallop with a barrel stave. 

To stand and admire sets, dance rou- 
tines or lighting, without your back up 
against a wall was inviting disaster when 
those gentle wagsters were abroad. 

In those sequences when Doris Nolan, 
as the somewhat balmy heiress Diana 
Borden, stages her "artistic" conception 
of what night club entertainment should 
be, even the wildest burlesque imaginable 
was unable to draw the spotlight from 
the ad libbing and ribbing of the picture's 

During the first days of shooting, some 
fear was expressed that the natural rivalry 
between such outstanding comedians as 
Hugh Herbert and Gregory Ratoff might 
create jealousy and tension — but instead 
it expressed itself in merciless kidding of 
one another. 

Hugh Herbert imitated Ratoff's accent 
and would steal Gregory's favorite ad- 
jectives and slip them into his own lines 

Comedians of all nationalities are featured 
in Universal's Top of the Town. Here is a 
quartet of nine who will make you laugh. Left 
to right — Hugh Herbert, Scotch; Gregory 
Ratoff, Russian; Henry Armetta, Italian, and

College Holiday, Paramount's mirth film featuring Jack Benny, Mary Boland, George Burns, 

Gracie Allen, Marsha Hunt, Martha Raye, Eleanore Whitney and others, carries much eye appeal 

as this dancing pavilion scene indicates. Read about it in this article 


One in a Million is acclaimed as "hot stuff" 
despite the fact it is largely made on ice — 
a synthetic "lake" built on the 20th Century- 
Fox sound stage. Above are. four prominent

adopted Hugh's mannerisms and peculiar 
little noises. 

Soon everybody on the set was imitat- 
ing every one else, with Ella Logan urg- 
ing them on. Then came the battle of 
nationalities and dialects. Mischa Auer, 
on his first appearance on the set, before 
definitely being cast to the picture, picked 
on Henry Armetta, stealing his manner- 
isms and his dialect. Henry became an 
Italian version of his friend, Scotch Ella 
Logan. Soon so many were imitating one 
another that they began to add various 
foreign words to their accents until, final- 
ly, they formed what they called the Club 
of Babel, and each undertook to teach 
another his language. 

Out of this came a language club in 
which all members gave and took lessons. 
Armetta taught Italian; Ratoff, Russian; 
Gertrude Niesen, Swedish. Hugh Her- 
bert was planning to take Chinese from 
the Chink comedian of the picture — but 
finally gave it up and decided to teach 
English to the other members of the club. 
George Murphy and Doris Nolan, being 
Irish, said that they would be willing to

The Thin Man 

When The Theatre-going public 
showered its whole-hearted ac- 
claim, plus its shekels, on Thin 
Man a year and a half ago, Metro's pro- 
ducer, Hunt Stromberg dusted off a chair 
for the brilliant Dashiell Hammett, and 
put him at work on a follow-up. The 
Return of the Thin Man, in its final stages 
of filming as this is written, is the result. 
Sequels, Hollywood's wise ones will as- 
sure you, seldom, if ever, stack up with 
their predecessors, but this new Hammett 
opus promises to be the exception to the 
rule. Not only has the author topped his 
earlier effort, but W. S. Van Dyke, the 
director, and Myrna Loy and Bill Powell, 
the stars, have injected into it an enthu- 
siasm that is probably without parallel 
in movie-making. 

Picking up Powell as Nick Charles, 
super-sleuth, and Miss Loy as his screen 
wife, Nora, where they were dropped by 
the final fadeout of Thin Man — aboard a 
transcontinental train en route to their 
home in San Francisco — Hammett pilots 
them into the midst of a series of fast- 
moving events that result in two murders

Strong Sea Drama 
Regenerates "Brat" 

M-g-m budgeted a million dollars to 
complete Captains Courageous. 
Rudyard Kipling's strong, salty tale 
of heroism among the cod fishermen off 
the New England coast. It is a masculine 
tale of a spoiled brat (Freddie Bartholo- 
mew) who falls off a transatlantic liner 
to be rescued by a Portuguese cod fisher- 
man (Spencer Tracy). New dramatic 
possibilities are opened for these stars as 
the plot unwinds Bartholomew's regen- 
eration under the firm but loving hand of 
the simple Portuguese. 

Nothing is spared to make this picture 
a masterpiece of physical realism. The 
studio purchased the Gloucester cod-fish- 
ing schooner Spinney and brought her 
with her crew through the Canal to Cali- 
fornia waters. Now she is the We're Here 
of the original Kipling story. For the 
annual race between schooners to be the 
first in Gloucester with cargo the Mariner 
was chartered to be the Jenny Cushman 
in the picture. 

On January 7. 1936, the We're Here be- 
gan accumulating background for this 
epic of the sea. Capt. J. M. Hersey and 
the original Cape Cod crew who brought 
her around last winter spent several 
months sailing her between Long Beach 
and Coos Bay, Oregon, seeking location 
spots for the racing sequence with the 
Jenny Cushman. It is hard to find a 
stretch of sea where neither pleasure 
craft, airplanes, battle cruisers, steamers 
or freighters will spoil the view and sound 

Spencer Tracy empties a bail-shovel full of water over Freddie Bartholomew, who falls off the 

stern of a liner at sea and is rescued by Tracy to provide the plot of Captains Courageous, 

Metro-Soldwyn-Mayer production of Kipling story 

Realistic Storm 

In Oregon backgrounds were shot of a 
brisk storm, so realistic that the company 
lost one man overboard. Background

Tremendous technical difficulties have 
made production of this sea picture very 
trying. Because shooting on the schooner's 
interior is virtually impossible due to 
cramped space leaving no room for the 
camera, the interior of the We're Here 
was exactly reproduced in two units on a 
studio stage. A railed platform often was 
used from which to shoot action on board 
while the company was at sea. 

To insure realism in the studio sets Olaf 
Olsson, member of the original crew, was 
made technical adviser and told to insist 
on exactitude to the last detail. Now he 
likes Hollywood and motion pictures so 
well he's importing his wife and three 
children from Gloucester and settling 

Interior Replica Built 

A complete foc'sle and galley replica 
was installed on the stage, precise down 
to the worn oil-cloth on the V-table 
where the crew ate. On the shelves above 
the double decker bunks, 12 on a side, 
were found everything from concertinas 
to shaving mugs. There were storage cup- 
boards for food and crockery, copper pans 
hanging from hooks above the stove, soap, 
mops, brooms, and buckets in their places. 
The crew even cooked lunch over the 
stove on the set, rather than march down 
to the commissary for the noon -day bite. 

Both parts of the interior set were bal- 
anced on an immense iron ball which 
swung within a girdered cup, on the gyro- 
scopic principle. A system of levers soon 
made possible shifting the set in any di- 
rection. When the levers were released 
the set settled back on an even keel. The 
camera was on a stationary platform, 
alongside or above, enabling reproduction

Another movie star who suffered by poor direction 

JANUARY, 1937 


Behind the Scenes 

Train Your Dog 
the Hollywood Way 

Have You Ever sat back in the serene 
confines of a darkened movie palace 
and marveled at a dog as he went 
through his paces on the screen? Won- 
dered just how the canine actor was 
trained to perform those extraordinary 
feats . . . and whether you could teach 
your own pet tricks such as you've seen 
on countless occasions in picture after 
picture? If you are one of this vast num- 
ber, then this story is for you. 

As in every other department relating 
to motion pictures, Hollywood has its own 
method of training dogs. This is a very 
specialized undertaking and requires a 
form of teaching unique in the animal 
training world. In picture work, dogs are 
not taught routines, as they are for the 
stage and circus . . . since every produc- 
tion is different they must know the 
meaning of innumerable words and 
phrases and understand general action at 
a single command. 

Whenever you see a dog follow close at 
the heels of his picture-master . . . 
whenever he yawns or scratches or cocks 
up one ear in a cute and attentive attitude 
. . . you can know each act is the result 
of a definite cue which the animal under- 
stands. Even when he appears the most 
natural, such as jumping up to be petted, 
he is following his trainer's signalled 
prompting. Every action has been care- 
fully worked out beforehand by director 
and trainer and the dog responds accord- 

How To Start In 

To learn the secret of training dogs the 
Hollywood way we jogged out to the 

kennels of Henry East, best known, per- 
haps, of all the dog trainers in Hollywood. 
For fourteen years he has been making 
screen thespians out of '.is canine friends 
and many of the dogs you see daily on the 
screen — such as Laddie the Collie, Von the 
Great Dane, Skippy the Wire-hair and 
Corky the Cur — belong to him. 

"Before any dog is ready for motion pic- 
ture work he must be taught the funda- 
mentals commonly known as parlor 
tricks," East, a large, good-natured man 
with the patience of Job, declared. "Nat- 
urally, the same applies to the family pet, 
if you want him to acquire a wide reper- 

Teaching a dog to yawn on command is not 

difficult. It's all in the way you go about it. 

Try Mr. East's suggestion in this article 

Topsy isn't yawning in this photo — he's singing. But before you go into intricate stuff 
like this, be sure your dog knows the elementary rules of conduct explained here 


Your dog can learn to do tricks such as Henry 

East illustrates here. The idea here is for the 

dog to walk on three legs (see story) 

toire of tricks. The first thing your dog 
must learn is to answer his master's call. 
Then, he should be taught to stand 
patiently and indefinitely on a chair or 
box. Next, to obey the commands of 'sit 
down,' 'lie down' and 'roll over.' Almost 
every movement demanded thereafter can 
be modified from these fundamentals." 

"That's all very well," you say . . . "but 
how can I teach my dog some of the more 
unusual tricks I've seen movie dogs do on 
the screen? How can I train him to limp, 
yawn, stretch, scratch and the dozens of 
other rather amazing stunts these dumb 
actors regularly perform?" 

We will tell you some of them, but first 
we want to issue a word of caution. 

In these days of roaring motor traffic it 
is essential that your dog should learn the 
fundamental commands. Your only wea- 
pons in teaching him should be morsels of 
food and occasionally, when he is ob- 
viously bad, a very lightly rolled news- 
paper. The noise of a newspaper whacking 
lightly on a dog will bring him into line 
instantly where a beating will only break 
his spirit. 

Never whip your dog. And never 
punish him at all unless he has committed 
a very grave sin. A dog cooperates only 
with his friend. 

Be Sure He Learns These 

To get your dog to come to you instantly, 
call him over and over again from a dis- 
tance, feeding him a morsel each time. 
Whether it be this lesson or another, prac- 
tice for only a few minutes at a time over 
a period of days. 

Eventually he will understand you. But 
always use the same command word se- 
lected for each trick. If you want your 
dog to obey your "come" command ex- 
clusively, use an unusual word such as 
"Attend!" He will learn the association 
just as easily, and ignore words such as 
"here" or "come." 

Don't raise your voice. Avoid making 
motions with your hands except at the 
[Continued on page 72] 



They Who Lead 
Double Lives 

Everything changes with time — even 
the route to stardom. 
It used to be that anyone aspiring to 
a movie career felt, "If only I could get 
on as an extra some famous director would 
see me on the screen for just one im- 
pressionable minute and — success!" Quite 
a few made the grade that way, but now 
an increasingly popular route to the top 
is via the stand-in road. 

This is interesting because stand-ins 
are never photographed. But they con- 
sider themselves very lucky and as one 
of them explained it: 

"The contacts we make while working 
on a picture are far more valuable than a 
fleeting glance of our faces on the screen 
out of focus. 

"If we show any ability whatever, some 
of the directors will let us rehearse the 
stars' lines, which gives us a grand op- 
portunity to prove that we are potential 

"And if we succeed at rehearsals, the 
directors call us for bit parts and if we 
make good in them it is just a question of 
hard work and a smile from Lady Luck 
before we have our own stand-ins." 

Another break that a stand-in has over 
the extras is that the stand-in work is 
much more steady, therefore more lucra- 
tive. And another very important and 
expensive detail — the wardrobe depart- 
ment furnishes them with clothes while 
the extras have to supply their own out- 

Resemblance Not Mandatory 

A stand-in doesn't necessarily resemble 
a star, but should be approximately the 
same height. However, this is not essen- 
tial. Harry Coinblath stands in for Fred 
Astaire, Edward Everett Horton, Bob 

Bob WMttaker (left) came to Hollywood and 
won a screen job on a street corner. A talent 
scout picked him up to become Gene Raymond's 
stand-in. This scene was taken during the film- 
ing of Lily Pons' new picture, as yet untitled 

So amaiingly alike in appearance that it's hard to tell who's which! Edward Arnold, on the 
left, looks over a script of his new film, John Meade's Woman, with stand-in William Hoover 

Mary Jane Irving, a young lady of 
twenty, has naturally blond hair, so when 
she stands in for Lily Pons and Janet 
Gaynor she has to wear a dark transfor- 

"Baby" Marie Osborne, who was once 
a star in her own right, now poses for 
Ginger Rogers and when she is working 
has to cover her black hair with a red wig. 
And of course Harpo Marx's stand-in 
must wear a replica of his inimitable wig. 

However, some of the stand-ins do bear 
a striking resemblance to their stars. 

Sonia Day has James Dunn to thank for 
her job. He saw her in a drug store wear- 
ing dark glasses and went over and spoke 
to her, thinking she was Marion Marsh, 
with whom he was about to start work on 
a picture. Sonia took off her glasses and 
showed him his mistake, but instead of 
[Continued on page 48] 

Adalyn Doyle, above, previously was stand-in 
for Katharine Hepburn. She stuck the job out 
until she got a chance of her own to act! 

Woolsey and Randy Scott, who are all 
different heights, but that doesn't worry 
Harry. A pair of trick shoes which he 
designed himself does the work. His 
height is regulated with a lever and can 
be raised or lowered for a range of sev- 
eral inches. 

Victor Sabuni, who stands in for hand- 
some Francis Lederer, is shorter than his 
star, so he has to have thick wooden soles 
and heels to make him taller. He hasn't 
fallen down in them yet but it wouldn't 
surprise him if he did. Sometimes the 
stand-ins are too tall and then they take 
off their shoes to make themselves shorter, 
because the difference of even an inch or 
so can completely throw off the lighting 
of a star. It isn't essential for a stand-in to 
have the same color or style of hair dress 
as the star, for it is simple enough to sub- 
stitute a wig. 

lhis photo of Miss Hepburn shows the re- 
markable resemblance between herself and 
Adalyn Doyle, the stand-in who made good 






COME AND GET IT— (Samuel Gold- 
*yn) — Presenting his second American 
classic of the season, Samuel 
Goldwyn uses Edward Arn- 
old, Frances Farmer and Joel 
McCrea as his nucleus in un- 
winding one of the most sat- 
[S»^ isfying dramas it has been 

our privilege to witness. 
Like Dodsworth, this film 
earns superlative praise for itself, for the 
triumvirate we have already mentioned, 
and for others in the cast — Walter Bren- 
nan. Andrea Leeds, Mary Christians, 
Mary Nash. 

Opening with an amazing sequence of 
gigantic lumber operations, the picture 
reveals the ruthless timber-grabbing tac- 
tics which de-forested the midwest at the 
turn of the century. But after showing 
this series of astonishing logging scenes 
which will give you the urge to applaud 
loudly, the story veers to the story of 
Barney Glasgow (Edward Arnold). Glas- 
gow, in love with Lotta, a dance hall 
girl (played by Frances Farmer), never- 
theless gives her up to marry his rich 
employer's daughter as a means of be- 
coming Wisconsin's richest citizen. Thirty 
years of remorse tempers his greedy na- 
ture. Eventually he meets Lotta's daugh- 
ter, at which time Frances Farmer enters 
the picture again in this role. Beyond this 
fateful occasion only the picture itself 
should take you. 

Arnold himself, placed in a role tailored 
to his talents, rises to heights far exceeding 
even his Diamond Jim characterization. 
But like Walter Huston in Dodsworth, 
Arnold must share honors with others 
in the cast. Walter Brennan, as his faith- 
ful friend, handles a remarkable role with 
consistent finesse. Perhaps most astonish- 
ing is the work of Frances Farmer, a 
recent graduate of the University of 
Washington. Her dance hall girl char- 
acterization will make the women chat- 
ter, make wise men keep discreetly silent. 
After handling this with more punch than 
even Mr. Goldwyn himself could expect, 
she assumes the more demure role of 
Lotta's daughter, carries it through with 
equal conviction. 

If you have never heard the principal 
song in Come and Get It, you will want 
to know more about the tune. Faced with

With subtle, flattering Technicolor handy

story takes hold, Garden of

film forcefully portraying the 
struggle of two lost souls 
seeking happiness. Slow to 
unfold its highly abstract 
story, the picture wins con- 
tentment from any audience with spec- 
tacular color views of the desert coupled 
with a moving musical score. 

Once the familiar tale reaches the point 
of a safari into the desert, technical diffi- 
culties smooth out and the two principals.

the audience. Boyer is the monk who 
has abandoned his vows of isolation and 
silence, only to find happiness a fleeting 
thing never to be attained. Miss Die- 
trich's unhappiness is not so clearly moti- 
vated, but matters little when the two 
seek futilely to solve their problems by 

Technicolor brings out all the gorgeous 
beauty of Miss Dietrich, makes her a 
vision of utter loveliness. Boyer, who 
looks natural enough in color, has greater 
opportunity for character delineation and 
succeeds in tugging at the emotional 
strings of his audience. 

Go to the theatre prepared for a story 
that deals with mental conflicts rather 
than physical, and you will not be dis- 
appointed. Gorden of Allah emerges 
largely as an intellectual challenge, amply 
fulfills its purpose at the climax. 

Whether or not you will agree with the 
studio's neat adaptation of an old motto 
— "Allah, be praised!" — you will find the 
picture worth your time and money. You 
will enjoy Basil Rathbone in a role that 
is not villainous, and you will be thor- 
oughly impressed with Joseph Schild- 
kraut, playing the part of Marlene's amia- 
ble guide who occasionally likes to burst 
into fits of poetry.

bia) — Three major factors — Irene Dunne, 
Melvyn Douglas and Cir- 
cumstance — stage a three- 
cornered battle in Theodora 
Goes Wild, a battle that in- 
troduces Miss Dunne as a 
thorough-going comedienne 
and allows Douglas ample 
opportunity as her foil. Let's 
get the situation first: 

Miss Dunne is cast as the inexperienced 
young author who has never lived out- 
side her staid New England home town, 
yet who writes sophisticated, worldly 
books of the jazz age type. Visiting New 
York, she meets Douglas, an illustrator, 
and "goes wild" for a few brief hours. 
The young artist, intrigued by her naivete, 
follows her to Lynnville and proposes to 
free her from home town bondage. 

Succeeding in this objective, Douglas 
suddenly finds the tables turned when 
Irene moves in on New York, seeks to 
free him from the domestic entanglements 
which have imprisoned him for several 

All of this could have been done in a 
dramatic vein, but with Director Richard 
Boleslawski at the helm, Miss Dunne is 
converted into a first rate comedienne 
fully capable of providing a distinguished 
performance. Humorous moments pre- 
vail throughout the picture, with events 
almost reaching a slapstick stage at times. 
Outstanding in a minor role as Irene's 
disapproving aunt is Elisabeth Risdon. 
Following the flounderings of Circum- 

JANUARY. 1937 

stance, Miss Risdon changes to meet each 
new emergency, gradually becomes a 
defiant liberal ready to stare down the 
disapproval of her townsmen. Opposing 
her is Spring Byington, leader of the vil- 
lage gossip circle. It is a type of rol? 
always capably handled by the popular 
Miss Byington. 

Thurston Hall as the book publisher. 
Leona Maricle as Douglas' wife, Frederick 
Burton as the governor and Thomas Mit- 
chell as the home town editor all enhanc3 
the inherent comedy. 

We recommend this picture because it 
reveals Miss Dunne as a more versatile 
artist than anyone suspected, because 
Melvyn Douglas likewise garners bushels 
of laughs, and — well, just because it's 
thoroughly and genuinely funny! 

Theodora Goes Wild comes close to a 
"hats off" rating, certainly merits your at-

universal popularity of 
lighter first rank pictures, to

Stark drama of unshorn 
life in the marrow dominates 
this story of hatred. It tells 
the hatred of a son whose father was 
electrocuted for a murder of which he 
was innocent. The irony of the gods as 
they juggle the characters hopelessly 
caught in the rugged living down in the 
deep, obscure mire of New York's sub- 
tenement hell is the powerful melody of 
this story. 

Burgess Meredith as the hating son is 
splendid. He is a high strung man gnawed 
by flaming, concentrated, determined bit- 
terness. His rabbit-like eyes and ascetic 
face make so much more effective his 

Margo has that pretty face. She is a

with the necessity of triumphing over 
an extremely unsatisfactory 
story, Katharine Hepburn, 
Herbert Marshall, Donald 
Crisp and Director Mark 
Sandrich struggle with this 
film, exploited before release 
under the working title of A 
Portrait oj a Rebel. 
Hepburn's first trial comes as a bud- 
ding debutante of Victorian days, during 
which period she achieves a feeling of 
immaturity largely by nostrilizing too 
much. Rebellion comes after too close 
supervision of her and her sister (Eliza- 
beth Allen) by an unspeakably strict 
father (Donald Crisp.)

But you can stop those cloggings! Bring

Dresses— J. W. Robinson Co. 
Shoes — Wetherby-Kayser 

And So It Is in school as in dress — the 
principle of the thing. 
L Fundamentally the principles or 
laws of dress are as basicly sound as the 
foundation of learning. These simple 
rules have been handed down through the 
ages until today they are so much a part 
of our wardrobes that we never take time 
to analyze just what these basic dress 
principles consist of. 

The principles are three in number — 
namely, that the current fashion should 
express the feeling and the need of the 
hour and activity; that it should never 
be conspicuous by its eccentricity, but 
always obvious by its discrimination; and 
that above all, it should be graceful, com- 
fortable and practical. Naturally, the 
methods of adopting and adapting these 
basic laws of dress must vary with each 
season and each successive generation. 

Returning to school after the holidays 
with trunks full of lovely presents and 
hearts full of good cheer, we solemnly 
vow to take our wardrobes to task and 
learn the first fashion lesson for the year 
1937 — the definition of the three following

Just a Funny Old Song Everybody Knows 

"TX 7"E sing, we sing, we sing of 
' ' Lydia Pinkham," so go the 
words of an old song known on every 
college campus. 

Old grads sing it at their class 

The young people sing it when 
they gather around the piano at 
home on their college vacations. 

And mother, listening, puts her 
book aside and joins in the chorus. 

"How she saved, she saved, she 
saved the human race — " remember 
the words of the parody? 

From laughing young lips that 
have never known the twist of pain 
it comes with gay abandon. Just a 
funny old school song everybody 

But to silver haired mothers who 
have run life's gauntlet, to women 
who have lain on the rack in childbirth, 
known the fiery ordeal of the "change" 
— these words bring grateful memories. 
To them it is much more than just a 
funny song. 

Lydia E. Pinkham was a real woman 

The song is a parody. But Lydia E. 
Pinkham was a very real person. In fact 
hers is one of the best known names in 
the history of American women. 

She began her work in the light of little 
knowledge. Her laboratory was a kitchen. 
Her compounding vat an iron kettle on 
a New England kitchen stove. 

But today her work is being carried on 
under the banner of modern science. 

And now her product is made in a 
great plant occupying six modern fac- 
tory buildings.

E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is 
not a patent medicine.

We who carry on the work of Lydia 
Pinkham do not offer this Vegetable 
Compound as a panacea or a cure-all. 

We do know it has been tested and

women have written to tell us it has 
been helpful during the three most

we have ever printed could compare

being embarrassed Mr. Dunn took her 
back to the studio, where she has a steady 
job as a stand-in for Miss Marsh. 

William H. Hoover looks so much like 
his star, Edward Arnold, that they are 
mistaken for brothers. And just to make 
the resemblance complete, Arnold and 
Hoover are both left-handed. 

Bob Whittaker, who came to Hollywood 
on a visit, was spotted by a talent scout 
while he was waiting at a street corner 
for the light to change, and now his visit 
has become permanent while he stands in 
for handsome Gene Raymond, who is en- 
gaged to Jeanette MacDonald. 

Buddy Roosevelt is another stand-in 
who looks amazingly like his star, Ronald 
Colman. It is surprising, but none of the 
stand-ins feel that their resemblance to 
famous stars hinders their personal ca- 
reers in any way. They logically think 
out that clothes and make-up make the 

She Gets Advanced 

One example of this is Mary Jo Ellis, 
who was Ann Shirley's stand-in. Now. 
thanks to Miss Shirley who coached and 
helped her, Mary Jo is playing an im- 
portant part in Make Way for a Lady, in 
which her former star is the leading lady. 
Seeing them on the screen together you 
would never suspect that Mary Jo was 
once Miss Shirley's stand-in. 

Adalyn Doyle is another stand-in on 
the road to fame unhandicapped by her 



Here's Cary Grant with Ms stand-in, Bob 
Johnson. They scarcely look alike, but

ered her while she was working for Kath- 
arine Hepburn and signed her up for a 
long-term contract. Adalyn is now in 
the East being groomed for her screen 
debut, while her sister Patsy stands in 
for the brilliant Hepburn. Carmen La 
Roux, who comes from Durango, Mexico, 
the same town as Dolores Del Rio, and 
who has been working as the beautiful 
Dolores' stand-in, has just signed a con- 
tract with Ramon Novarro to appear in 
several Mexican pictures which he will 

But not all the stand-ins are looking 
forward to a motion picture career. 

Kasha, who is Joan Crawford's substi- 
tute, spends her spare time writing lyrics 
and music and if her latest song, now 
being sung and played by Wayne King 
and his orchestra, is a success, she will 
leave Joan and the movies to devote her 
entire time to song-writing. 

Slim Talbot who came down out of the 
Montana mountains with Gary Cooper to 
play cowboy parts in the movies, and 
ended up by being Gary's stand-in, is 
perfectly happy in the background, just 
being with Gary and acting as official

Rollo Dix is a matinee idol of the stage

has the same features and coloring, was 
asked to be her stand-in. Now Shirley 
and Mary Lou can be together all day 

Bing Crosby and his stand-in, Leo 
Lynn, went to college together. As time 
passed and Bing and his crooning became 
popular he sent for Leo to help him an- 
swer his fan mail. And when Bing went 
into the movies Leo naturally went with 
him. When the question of a stand-in 
arose Leo obliged by stepping into the 

However, it isn't always so easy to get 
the role of a stand-in. Katherine Doyle 
(another one of the Doyle sisters) de- 
cided she wanted to be an actress like 
Barbara Stanwyck, and taking the advice 
of her two stand-in sisters, went to Miss 
Stanwyck and asked for the job. But 
charming Barbara had a stand-in of 
whom she was very fond, so she told 
Katherine she was sorry, but she would 
keep her in mind. Five months later 
Katherine was given the job. 

And then there is the story of Kathryn 
Stanley. She was first brought to Holly- 
wood by a talent scout, but for some rea- 
son didn't click, so she went back to the 
business world. One day she saw Irene 
Dunne on the screen and resolved to be 
Miss Dunne's stand-in, even if she 
couldn't be a star. So she came to Holly- 
wood again but still her battle wasn't won. 
For three long years she worked as stand- 
ins for other stars before she finally was 
given the opportunity to work for La 
Dunne. She also substitutes for Jane 
Wyatt and taught her how to play the

There are two husband and wife teams 
among the stand-ins. "Cracker" Hender-

Hitting Hollywood On High 
with Hamm Beall 

Fred MacMurray likes costume pictures, but when it comes to doing a gavotte in the forests, 
life isn't so much fun, even when Claudette Colbert is the lovely dancing partner 

Fred MacMurray cheered lustily when 
he was informed that he was selected 
to play opposite Claudette Colbert in 
Maid of Salem. Not so funny to Fred, 
however, was the necessity of doing the 
fancy gavotte dance in the woodlands 
with lovely Claudette. Fred does not love 

They danced all morning long in a forest 
near Santa Cruz before Director Frank 
Lloyd decided he had recorded the scene 
perfectly. Said MacMurray, perspiration 
on his brow: "I felt so damned charming 
I couldn't swing my boots." 

Replied coy Colbert: "Very true. They 
were on my feet most of the time. And I 
don't mean I was wearing your boots, 

Hollywood's Stars are assured for the 
next two years at least of a plethoric 
plentitude of malt, vinous and spiritous 
liquors; in other words, there'll be no 
legal handicaps to their stocking their 
cellars with ale, champagne, whiskies and 
rare old cognacs. 

Nor are the night clubs of the film 
capital apt to dim their lights and diminish 
crescendo of their crooners and arpeg- 
gios of their saxophone players. 

The last general election which swept 
Franklin Delano Roosevelt back into the 
White House for another four years, also 
blasted the hopes of professional "prohis" 
attempting to foist on hospitable California 
a so-called local option law that was in 
reality the gateway to prohibition. A 
goodly majority thumbed it down with 
their little criss cross stamps on the No- 
vember ballot. 

The gay night spots shuddered and 
trembled at another menace that hovered 

over them at the same election. Buron 
Fitts, district attorney of Los Angeles 
County for eight years, was vigorously 
opposed by Judge Harlan G. Palmer, bar- 
rister and former justice of the peace, 
whose major industry for many years has 
been publishing the Hollywood Citizen- 
News. It must be said that Judge Palmer 
with an able crew headed by Harold G. 
Swisher, his managing editor, has been 
doing a top-hole job of getting out a 
well edited, readable interesting journal, 
the only metropolitan daily in cinema 

Palmer has always campaigned against 
the insidious cocktail, the hilarious high- 
ball, the wins when it is red, and has con- 
scientiously refused to accept liquor ad- 
vertising in his paper, although he was 
big enough to open the display columns 
of his sheet to the Southern California 
Business Men's Association, which led the 
fight against the blue nose measure. 

Had Palmer been elected district attor- 
ney, the liberal element feared his first 
job would have been to put his own house 
in order, namely clamp down with rigid 
enforcement of all liquor laws, closing 
hours, etc., on the gay white Sunset strip 
where stars of the silversheet dine, dance, 
sup and make whoopee. 

Big shot gamblers who have operated 
surreptitiously in de luxe mansions of 
Hollywood for a period of years, moving 
from spot to spot before the mighty min- 
ions of Chief of Police James E. Davis 
and Sheriff Eugene W. Biscailuz could 
catch up with them, were particularly 
worried, for if Judge Palmer has one pet 
aversion it is the professional gambler. 

Stars have wagered thousands on the 
roulette wheels and dice tables of these 
roving recondite rendezvous; some have

won as high as $100,000 in a single night; 
others have dropped a like amount. Natu- 
rally old John Percentage has taken his 
toll of the gross wagers with the final re- 
sults in favor of the operators. 

One Hollywood gambling baron, Robert 
Goldenburg, better known as Bob Goldie, 
tried to extend his activities to San Fran- 
cisco, but the northern gambling czars re- 
sented this and he passed on to another 
world under most mysterious circum- 

Note that Walt Disney has received a

Hope it was a potato au gratin as that's 
Mickey's favorite spud. 

If it isn't maybe Mickey will send it to 
Eddie Cantor to be used in making Sara- 
toga Chips, his first starring vehicle for 
20th Century-Fox. 

Jack Oakie continues Hollywood's 
Public Prankster No. 1. Wonder what 
pandemonium would break loose with 
Vince Barnett, Hollywood's ace ribber, 
Sid Grauman, theatre magnate, who has 
for years been leading practical joker, and 
Doug Fairbanks, Sr. all assembled on one 
picture set? I would not want to predict. 
It's Hollywood legend as to what happened 
to the senior Fairbanks when he attempted 
a jolly bit of a joke on Elinor Glynn. 

Hollywood has its heartaches along with 
its hilarities.

PAULINE PALMER. U?l» Armour Blvd., KansasClry.Mo. 

Barbara Pepper, siren of the screen, has 
turned authoress, and joined the 
rapidly growing list of young star 
writers, which now includes Ginger 
Rogers, Eric Linden, Gene Raymond, and 
Tom Brown. Barbara has just completed 
a novel entitled Gabby the Gamin. It's 
taken her two years and a half to write 
and edit it. 

The characters of her book motivate in 
an atmosphere not unlike the one that 
Barbara herself has lived in. Gabby, a 
little waif, the heroine, works in a. 
hotel (Barbara's father was manager of 
a hotel in Albany for many years), 
and then eventually, after many experi- 
ences, tries the show business, just as 
Barbara did. Barbara tells me that the 
heroine is an Anne Shirley character and 
she got her inspiration for the book when 
she saw Anne's performance in Anne of 
Green Gables. 

Mrs. Pepper has saved Barbara's writing 
from the waste paper basket many times, 
when it wasn't going smoothly, by 
encouraging her and suggesting little 
changes — so when Gabby the Gamin by 
Barbara Pepper reaches the book stands, 
you'll find these words on the fly leaf: 
"Dedicated to my beloved mother, without 
her aid this would not have been a book."

thur's sister, has never been given a real

(slow burn) Kennedy's giggling, fast talk- 
ing wife in comedies, but few could tell you 
her name. So it is with a great deal of 
pleasure that we announce she has at last 
gotten her well deserved chance by being 

signed to play one of Hepburn's spinster 
sisters in Quality Street. Here's wishing 
you luck, Florence! . . . 

Ed Thorgenson since his appearance as 
Sports Commentator for Fox Movietone 
News has received as many fan letters as 
Clark Gable, consequently he's being 
brought to the coast to appear in feature 
pictures . . . which should make all the 
ladies happy. 

Robert Taylor has become number one 
leading man of the screen and is now re- 
ceiving an average of forty thousand let- 
ters a month, ten thousand a week, if you 
please, and has a contingent of five people 
working night and day to keep up with it. 
Their headquarters is the home of Bob's 
mother, who says she's beginning to feel 
exactly like a postmaster. His five helpers 
incidentally, sort out the interesting letters 
and Bob reads them over in his spare time. 
Which should be a tip to you Taylor fans 
... if you want to be certain Bob reads 
your letter to him ... be sure that it's an 
interesting one. 

Even as You and I . . . Screen stars have 
favorite old clothes they hate to discard. 
Owen Davis, Jr., has an old Panama hat 
that is shapeless, but still he keeps it, and to 
justify himself wears it every once in a while 
—and needless to say takes a "ribbing" 
every time he does . . . Lew Ayres has a grey 
bath robe and slippers that he bought dur- 
ing the filming of All Quiet on the Western 
Front some ten years ago. He keeps them 
for sentimental reasons and even though he

has many fine robes which he has bought 
since, he still wears the grey . . . Anne Shir- 
ley has a sweater her mother bought her on 
"Dollar Day" almost five years ago. She 
says she doesn't hang on to it for any 
reason except that she still likes it and wants 
it to wear . . , Dick Cromwell has an old 
bathing suit he bought w.'th his first pay 
check. He never wears it himself but loans 
it to his friends who have forgotten to 
bring a suit when they come to his home 
for swimming . . . Grace Durkin still has 
her first party dress. Its slightly antiquated 
style keeps her from wearing it, so she pre- 
serves it in moth balls. 

Pick Ups . . . Warner Brothers is soon 
to make another version of Penrod and 
Sam ... to my knowledge this is the third 
time this has been made in the last ten or 
twelve years. The first Ben Alexander 
starred in, the next Leon Janney, and now 
Billy Mauch is to play the leading role . . . 
Before Alice Faye came to Hollywood, and 
was just a singer with Rudy Vallee's or- 
chestra, she was often told by her friends 
that she resembled that little dancing star- 
let, Betty Grable, but now that Alice has 
been given better breaks and larger roles 
than Betty in pictures, people say that 
Betty looks like Alice! . . . Movie mothers 
have had as many jokes made up about 
them as have traveling salesmen, but they 
still hold their own in their daughters' 
and sons' hearts. Last week at the Cocoa- 
nut Grove, Jean Harlow and her mother 
were dining with William Powell, and at 
another table was June Travis with Dick 
Purcell and his mother, while still at an- 

Eleanore Whitney and Johnny Downs . .

other table was Mrs. Jewell, Isabel and 
Owen Crump . . . When Ginger Rogers 

learned that she was to have her first seri- 
ous role in Mother Carey's Chickens she 
promptly dyed her hair brown, but the 
picture has been postponed and her next 
is Stepping Toes . . . which means she 

might have to go back to her natural "red" 
. . . Margo's favorite pastime is work. She 
hasn't had a week off in three years. If 
she isn't making a picture, she's in a play. 
or studying dancing or music . . . she loves 
it and says the more work the better she 
likes it, (Margo, if you run out of things to 
do speak to my boss, he's a cinch at finding 
work for people — especially me! . . .) 
(Aside to ye, boss — "Honest, I'm only kid- 
ding!) . . .

Riddle Me This . . . What blond actress 
whose name is constandy linked with that 
of an actor, actually dislikes the actor to 
such an extent that her friends are worried 
over what she might do if she finds out that 
it is the actor himself who is planting all 
the publicity stories about them? 

Cupid Darts . . . Sonja Henie and Tyrone 
Power, Jr., are now talking with the same 
accent of love . . . Dick Purcell can't decide 
between Alice Faye, June Travis and Mary 
Brian so he takes them all out ... on alter- 
nate nights. Louise Latimer and Erwin 
Gelsy, whose marriage we gave you a 
scoop on. is a modern one. in other words, 
each can go out with whom they please 
and when they please, with no questions 
asked . . . Eleanore Whitney and Johnny 
Downs now call each other Duke and 
Duchess . . . Patricia Ellis' romance with 
Bert Kalmar, Jr., will bear watching . . .

Tests prove that 76% of all peo- 
ple over the age of 1 7 have bad 
breath ! And the same tests prove 
that most bad breath comes 
from improperly cleaned teeth. 
Colgate Dental Cream, because 
of its special penetrating foam, 
removes the cause— the decay- 

ing food deposits in hidden 
crevices between teeth which 
are the source of most bad 
breath, dull, dingy teeth, and 
much tooth decay. At the same 
time, Colgate's soft, safe polish-

enamel — makes teeth sparkle!

The minute you feel a weepy, 
sneezy cold coming on, reach for 
your Mentholatum jar or tube. It 
brings such quick and delightful 
relief from the distressing symp- 
toms of head colds. A little 
Mentholatum applied in each nos- 
tril soothes the irritated mucous 
membranes, as well as helping to 
open the stopped-up nostrils and 
check the sneezing. 

As an extra precaution also rub 
Mentholatum vigorously on the 
chest and on the back between the 
shoulders at night to stimulate 
sluggish circulation, and so you 
can breathe its soothing vapors 
while you sleep. You will be de- 
lighted with the comfort that 
Mentholatum gives.

have poured in from those of you who 
are "old-enough-to-be-young-enough" to

and are sincerely appreciated. 

Tickle Your Memory 

Have you a good memory? Of course 
you have — but have you ever actually 
tested it? Invite your friends to partici- 
pate. You will need as material for this 
game a large cardboard box with a cover 
and twenty-five or thirty articles found 
in almost every home. These include a 
small tin can opener, milk bottle cap, car- 
pet tack, coin, flashlight battery, large 
cork, small glass, empty spool, pencil, 
thimble, teaspoon, large button, key ring, 
book of matches, comb, small pocket mir- 
ror, door key, eraser, salt shaker — or 
anything small enough to fit into the 

Arrange this assortment of doo-dads in 
the box and pass around the room from 
one guest to another. Each person is al- 
lowed two minutes in which to inspect the 
contents of the box, to note mentally each 
article displayed therein. The box is then 
covered and placed on a nearby table. 
Five minutes is the customary length of 
time allowed for the guests to jot down the 

After the box has been opened and lists 
checked, many of those present will be 
amazed to learn they remembered perhaps 
only one-half of the items contained in the 
box. By all means award a prize to the 
person with the longest correct list — he 
will deserve it! 

Admission — One Game 

"You have to bring a game — or you can't 
get in!" Ginger Rogers warned several of 
her friends over the telephone when she 
invited them to her Malibu home for a 
regular Sunday night get-together. They 
evidently believed her, because they 
showed up with some very clever games 
and tricks. Johnny Green tried to prove, 
with Ginger's assistance, that he was a 
magician. His most renowned trick, he 
insisted, was his ability to leave the room 
while we chose an object, return in a 
given length of time and tell us what it 
was we chose. We were gullible, had to 
be shown! Upon his return, Ginger 
pointed out objects to him, asking, "Is it 
that book?" A definitely negative shake 
of his head from Johnny. "Is it that 
chair?" "No," said Johnny. "Is it this 
desk?" Johnny beamed. "Yes!" he de- 

Andy Devine disillusioned us by point- 
ing out that Johnny wasn't really psychic, 
because Ginger asked "Is it thatl" until 
she came to the correct object — and then 
she asked "Is it this?" The idea is to be 
able to "get away" with your this and that! 

The game Tom Brown suggested was 
ING TO TAKE ... if you've never played 
it, try it now. 

In this game, one must be careful to 
choose something which begins with his 
or her initials, otherwise he or she cannot 
go. Only a few of us had played it before, 
and those who insisted they were taking 
the same things we were, couldn't under- 
stand why they couldn't go also. Andy 
Devine told us he would go to Europe . . . 
and he would take an apple and a box of 
dominoes. Johnny Green thought that 
surely if Andy could go, so could he, if 
only he took along some dominoes But for 


Accept No Substitutes! Always Insist on the Advertised Brand! 

Johnny to go he would have to take, for 
example, a jewel and a garage. Those in 
the "know" continue to name different ob- 
jects until everyone catches on. 

Hang Nail Descriptions 

Despite their well-filled days, Holly- 
wood's humorists have found time to think 
of a new pastime. They have laughingly 
dubbed it, ''Hang Nail Descriptions." 

Here are several examples of these new 

Fred Stone — Skippy at sixty; Tom 
Brown — A discord in an Irish lullaby; 
Paula Stone — Sparkling burgundy in a 
blue glass; Toby Wing — Lemon jello with 
whip cream; Henry Willson is — A green 
bean in a fruit salad; Glenda Farrell— 
Fresh peaches with a crust; Anita Louise 
— A lalique vase figure; Frankie Darro — 
Salt water taffy from Brook; Katharine 
Hepburn — A floating cloud with a voice; 
George Burns and Gracie Allen — A parrot 
with a straight man. 

The game has many possibilities because 
one, or any number of persons can play it. 

Cross The Scissors 

One of Paula Stone's favorite games is 
Cross the Scissors. She started the game 
recently at one of her filmland parties. 

The idea of this game is to keep in the 
dark as long as possible those who have 
never played it before. Seat your guests 
in a circle or semi-circle. Then you, as 
hostess, pass a pair of scissors to the per- 
son to your right; as you pass them, re- 
mark, "I am passing these scissors to you 
crossed." Hold them very delicately, very 
carefully. Be sure that when you pass the 

scissors you have your legs crossed. If 
you happen to be acrobatically inclined, 
you might cross your legs the second time 
and say, "I pass these scissors to you 
double-crossed." You can also say, "I 
pass these scissors to you uncrossed." If 
you say this, be sure your legs are not 

Those in the know will repeat this pro- 
cedure until everyone has solved the ques- 
tion of just how they are passed. 

Sneaking In A Statement 

While two persons are out of the room, 
the others in the group concoct two rather 
absurd statements and write them out on 
separate pieces of paper. The two "actors" 
in this little "fun-drammer" are recalled 
and placed facing each other in the center 
of the room. Each is given the piece of 
paper with his statement, which he must 
not show the other. The two must begin 
conversation with the idea of eventually 
working up to the absurd statements 
handed them, of introducing them into 
their chatter without detection. 

An example of two ridiculous state- 
ments given each person might be: (1) 
"Oregon will have a big crop of fleas this 
year"; (2) "Limburger cheese grows well 
on corn stalks". Each contestant is faced 
with the necessity of being funny enough 
in his conversation to work in his absurd 
sentence without his opponent knowing it. 
In order to win, the sentence must be 
brought into prominence three separate 
times without detection, or to recognize 
his opponent's sentence within three 
guesses. If one contestant misses on his 
third attempt at guessing, the other wins 
without further effort. 

Why Barrymore 
Married Elaine! 

(Continued from page twenty-three) 

Did Barrymore hear her? It's ques- 
tionable. Standing there, more of a Hamlet 
in the dawn than a Caliban, he yawned 
wearily and muttered: 

"I'm sleepy!" 

The couple departed forthwith for a few 
hours rest. But nightfall, in spite of 
Barrymore 's 55 years (she's 21), found 
the couple making a gay round of the 
night clubs. 

Brother Lionel Barrymore did not care 
to make a statement for the press. 

The Barrymores may not make their 
home in the Hightower Road mansion of 
Hollywood fame. It was this home that 
Dolores Costello Barrymore was occupy- 
ing when the divorce suit changed the 
setup. She moved out, and ever since the 
place has been a ghost of its former self. 

What will they do? 

Well, one of the intriguing things about 
John Barrymore is his unpredictability. 
Independent and deliberately irresponsi- 
ble on occasions, he has a deep-seated 
love for fooling everybody on the slightest 
pretext. This marriage is a good example. 

But, if you care to take their present 
plans to heart, they will go on the stags 
together in the spring. Just now Barry- 
more is in demand at M-G-M, and must 
complete his work there before he will 
be free to do as he pleases. 

And if he pleases when spring comes 
around again, he will follow his present 
desire to go on the stage with Elaine. 

Jl. lay safe... take the 
doctor's judgment about laxatives 

YOU CHOOSE your family doctor 
because you have confidence in 
him. He will never take chances where 
your welfare is concerned. Even with a 
little thing like a laxative, doctors 
have a definite set of standards which 
guide them in their choice. Before they 
will give a laxative their approval, it 
must meet their requirements on these 
specific points: 

The doctor says that a laxative 

should be : Dependable . . . Mild 

Thorough . . . Time-tested. 

The doctor says that a laxative 
should not: Over-act ... Form a 
habit . . . Cause stomach pains . . . 
Nauseate, or upset the digestion. 

Now, here's a fact that's significant 
— Ex-Lax checks on each of these 
specifications. Not merely on two or 
three. But on all these points. 

No wonder so many physicians use 

Ex-Lax in their own families. No 
wonder millions of careful mothers 
give it to their children with perfect 
confidence. No wonder that Ex-Lax is 
used by more people than any other 
laxative in the world. 

Your first trial of Ex-Lax will be a 
pleasant experience. For Ex-Lax is 
mild and gentle. It is thoroughly effec- 
tive. It does not over-act. It does not 
disturb the digestion. 

Everyone likes Ex-Lax — particu- 
larly the youngsters. It tastes just like 
delicious chocolate. At all drug stores 
in 10c and 25c sizes. Or write for free

couple — branded them so deeply, in fact, 
that half of America's populace today 
gazes at them as both reel and real-life's 
No. 1 matrimonially-blessed pair, exist- 
ence of one Arthur (recent bridegroom) 
Hornblow, notwithstanding. Take that 
incident in the St. Francis Hotel in 'Frisco 
as an example: 

The Return of the Thin Man unit is lined 
up before the hotel desk, registering and 
drawing their room assignments. The 
clerk hands Powell the pen, watches him 
sign, then suggests: 

"You might as well register for your 
wife, too, Mr. Powell!" 

"My wife!" exclaims Bill. 

"Yes! Miss Loy is with you. is she not?" 

Powell was still blushing under the 
jibes of his fellow-players a few days 
afterward, when, working on location out- 
side a San Francisco night club, he was 
sought out by a frail little woman whose 
age had bettered the proverbial "two score 
and ten" mark, and taken to task for hav- 
ing permitted Myrna to slip past his heart. 

"I always looked upon you as the man 
who got the girl until Miss Loy up and 
married Mr. Hornblow," she told him. 
"That was one of the greatest disappoint- 
ments I ever had!" 

There's always fun aplenty on the Van 
Dyke talkie sets, with the director himself 
as the chief prankster, and this picture is 
no exception, despite the fact that Woody 
is unable to hide a nervousness caused by 
the loud -napping of stork wings above 
his Bel-Air abode. Already the daddy of 
a husky one-year-old son. he's hoping 
that the next one will be a girl. 

Both Bill and Myrna. victims of so many 
of Van Dyke's off-stage gags during the 
making of the Thin Man, cut loose a sigh 
of relief as they caught the twinkle in the 
director's eyes when he rested them on 
Sam Levine, a newcomer to Hollywood, 
who is cast as Lieut. Abrams in the cur- 
rent vehicle. Sam, they guessed, had 
been selected to bear the brunt of 
"Woody's" unbounded sense of humor, and 
right they were. 

Calling Levine, who will be remem- 
bered for his shining characterization of 
Patsy in the Broadway production of 
Three Men on a Horse, to one side, he led 
him off to the portable dressing-rooms of 
Bill and Myrna. 

"Pretty nice, eh?" inquired the director 
as Sam's orbs opened wide at the elegance 
and comfort of the interiors. "All im- 
portant players have them. How would 
you like one?" 

"Say, that's swell of you, Mr. Van 
Dyke!" beamed Sam. 

The Joke is Sprung 

Two days later, Levine's portable was 
unveiled in the presence of the assembled 
mob. There it was — his own private dress- 
ing-room right on the edge of the set. And 
his name painted on it in gold letters, too! 

"But where's the door, Mr. Van Dyke?" 
asked Levine, puzzled. 

"Right down there," explained Woody, 
pointing to an opening barely large 
enough for the actor to enter on hands 
and knees! 

Came the afternoon when Sam confided 
to the director that he had been in the 
film capital three months, and hadn't yet 
seen the really interesting sights. 

"Have dinner with me tonight, and I'll 
show you the town," volunteered Van 

Dyke. Then, turning to James Stewart, 
who was standing nearby, he invited, 
"Want to come along, Jimmy?" 

The megaphonist, whose vim, vigor and 
vitality actually equals his capacity for 
tricks, led the pair on a fast and furious 
tour of the late spots that lasted until 
the dawning. 

Van Dyke was back on the set early, 
showing no traces of the strenuous night. 
Not so with Levine and Stewart, who were 
present in body, but not in spirit. Be- 
tween scenes, the latter fell asleep in his 
chair. When he awoke he found hanging 
about his neck and draped across his 
dress-shirt front a fifteen-inch sign, in- 
scribed, "Please do not disturb!" 

With the coast football season at its 
height and Van Dyke a rabid fan, gridiron 
chatter occupied many of the players' 
leisure moments. Finally, Levine, who 
had never witnessed a gridiron contest, 
became intrigued. 

"What's the biggest game of the year 
out here?" he wanted to know. 

"The Agua Caliente Aggie-Tijuana 
Tech battle," replied Van Dyke, launch- 
ing into a "build-up." 

"Well, I'd sure like to see that one," en- 
thused Levine. 

"Tell you what, Sam," shot back Woody, 
"the tickets are pretty scarce for that one, 
but if you can dig up a pair, I'll pay for 
them and take you along. Incidentally, I 
won't need you tomorrow, so you'll have 
all day to line them up!" 

It wasn't until after Levine had put in 
seven hours canvassing the ticket agen- 
cies of Los Angeles, Hollywood and Bev- 
erly Hills that he discovered the Agua 
Caliente and Tijuana teams were merely 
the brain-children of Van Dyke. 

Sam Gets Even 

But that old saw about the worm turn- 
ing holds as true on the flicker lots as 
anywhere else. 

Shortly after Van Dyke so graciously 
presented Levine with a dog-house for a 
dressing-room. Bill and Myrna primed 
Sam for a bit of revenge, the latter laying 
the foundation when he complained to 
them of the high cost of eating in the 
studio commissary. 

"Don't tell me you've been paying for 
your meals in the commissary!" said 
Myrna, registering great surprise. "Didn't 
you know that the stars and featured 
players dine there free of charge!" 

"No one told me!" moaned Sam. 

"That's a shame," cut in Bill. "All you 
have to do is sign your director's name to 
the check for anything you want, either 
in the commissary or the studio barber 

"Yes," added Myrna, "and just have 
your tips included on the checks, too!" 

For the ensuing week, Sam breakfasted, 
lunched and dined daily — and he's no light 
eater, either — at Van Dyke's expense be- 
fore the bills were presented to the 
chagrined Woody. Meanwhile, Sam had 
been having the barbers give him the 
works, also at Woody's expense! 

Harry Albiez, for twelve years Van 
Dyke's prop man, is hailed in and about 
Cinematown as the world's champion cof- 
fee brewer, so the morning cup on the 
Van Dyke sets has long since become an 
established rite. And Bill Powell, be it 
known, truly enjoys an after-breakfast

unless you are a thorough -going Hepburn

Paramount) — It is grossly unfair to the 
producers to talk too much 
about any Mae West picture, 
for the essence of her pro- 
ductions is a series of typical 
wisecracks that either are or 
aren't funny. In Go West, 
Young Man the Westian per- 
siflage clicks off at a merry 
rate, garners a fair share of chuckles 
from the audience. 

Warren William, acting as Mae's press 
agent in the film story, faces the arduous 
job of keeping her away from the men. 
Inevitably William himself falls for the 
buxom actress. In the preview version, 
the film ends with a clinch between the 

Latest reports are that the picture has 
been pulled back in the studio for a more 
typical ending — with Mae swinging a fast 
punch to the jaw in the closing scene.

ROSE BOWL — (Paramount) — This 
one can be classed neither as a football 
or college picture. There is 
a smattering of both. How- 
ever there is a little romance, 
football and Benny Baker's 
comedy. The story is about 
two small town boys who 
make good playing football 
in college. Larry Crabbe goes 
to a large school on the west coast and 
Tom Brown goes to a small school in th3 
east. Both teams go through their re- 
spective seasons without a defeat and 
eventually meet in the New Year's Day 
game at the Rose Bowl. 

During the course of the picture there 
is love interest through rivalry between 
Tom and Larry over Eleanore Whitney. 

ago young Golda Draper came to Los 
Angeles from Idaho in search 
of a job as a waitress. Not, 
she explained, because she 
wanted that sort of a career, 
but because she wanted to 
write a book called Night 
Waitress. She found a job 
awaiting her at a popular 
cafe near the stately University of South- 
ern California. Among her regular cus- 
tomers were Trojan students and a few 
business men, one lawyer in particular. 
The attorney became a disturbing in- 
fluence. One night the cafe proprietor 
ordered Waitress Draper to refuse the 
man further service. Next night the at- 
torney returned with a gun, shot the 
waitress in the back. Faced with a long 
convalescence in the hospital after a 
period of critical illness, Miss Draper

This All-Veqetable Relief for 



I HAVE just discovered a really won- 
derful constipation relief . . . but I 
must admit that my new discovery has 
been a household word to hundreds of 
thousands of women for many, many 

When bowels are sluggish, clogged and 
unable to dispose normally of food waste 
. . . poisons invariably spread throughout 
the system, and lead to nervousness, list- 
lessness, headaches, bad complexion and 
so many other troubles. 

Of course, most of us realize that 
modern living conditions are so strenuous 
that outside assistance in eliminating 
waste is frequently necessary. But we 
must be so very careful about the kind of 
help we give. 

Now, NR Tablets (Nature's Remedy) 
have certainly proved to be a good, safe, 
sensible way to relieve constipation. NR 
tablets are entirely different from other 
kinds of laxative. You'll notice the amaz- 
ing difference in action the first time you 
try them. So gentle and easy . . . yet so 
very thorough. This is because Nature's 

Remedy is made up of a perfect blend of 
the most effective vegetable laxative ele- 
ments. NR's are not harsh or habit-form- 
ing. They are not artificial . . . they're 
natural and give gentle stimulation to the 
bowels so that you get an easy, refreshing, 
natural movement. 

The morning after you take your first 
NR tablet . . . you'll wake up feeling 
more refreshed and rested and vigorous 
than you have in a long while. And you'll 
find that continued occasional use of Na- 
ture's Remedy will tone up the intestinal 
tract ... to normal, regular functioning. 

You'll be glad to know that this mar- 
velous Nature's Remedy, the standby of 
millions, is not expensive! You can buy it 
at any drug store 
for only 25c. M} •]

Weight gaining was Karen Morley's greatest problem — until she reversed the rules and 

made a startling discovery which has brought her new health and beauty. Beloved Enemy 

is Karen's latest picture for Samuel Goldwyn 


. 'xnn 


In My Notebook I had jotted down such 
words as "streamlined" and "ultra so- 
phisticated" — words to be used in de- 
scribing Karen Morley whom I had come 
to interview on the set of Beloved Enemy 
at the Samuel Goldwyn Studio. But the 
words simply didn't fit the smiling girl 
who emerged from Miss Morley's dressing 

Karen herself supplied a new descrip- 
tion. "Yes," she said with humorous 
pride. "I have gained fifteen pounds 
and am now fat and jolly and full of 

Fat she was not — unless those lithesome 
curves could be called fat. But jolly she 
surely was — and certainly she had never 
looked lovelier. Her eyes sparkled with 
health and her skin glowed with rosy 

"All my life I have been called 'skinny,' " 
Karen said. "The kind of girl people are 
always stuffing with food or bundling up 
in wraps and mufflers. 

"I discovered," she went on, "that hun- 
dreds of other girls are worrying about 
being too thin — really an amazing number. 
So much attention is given to reducing, 
that the plight of the too-thin girl is over- 

"Naturally I tried all kinds of diets and

Verdes, where she lives with her husband,

every idea for weight gaining that anyone 
would suggest. I even tried the banana 
diet that worked wonders for Gary 
Cooper. I stuffed down bananas morning, 
night and noon — and nothing happened 
except that I soon came to loathe the sight 
of them." Karen smiled with amusement 
at this recollection. 

"Because I was afraid exercise would 
make me even thinner," she continued, "I 
shunned tennis and golf and everything 
else outside of my studio work that would 
cost me an ounce of energy. 

"Then some months ago I moved to 
Palos Verdes and, tempted by the lovely 
stretch of beach which was my front yard, 
I decided to forget all about diets and 
afternoon naps. No matter how thin I 
got, for once in my life I would swim and 
play tennis, eat what I wanted to and 
when I wanted to! 

"After a few weeks of this hedonistic 
existence, people began telling me I had 
never looked better, and I finally mustered 
enough courage to step on the scales. For 
the first time in years, I had gained! 

"I did make certain discoveries aside 
from the fact that exercise and fresh air 
will do more for the thin girl than all the 
pampering in the world," Karen said. 

"I had always been encouraged to take 
naps during the day with the result that 
I wasn't sleepy when I went to bed. When 
I stopped napping, I started sleeping at 
night, from eight to nine hours, and felt 
much more rested in the morning. 

"I found, too, that I can eat a great deal 
more food if it is served in small, dainty 
portions with a note of color. I love what 
men call 'tea-room food' — a little dab of 
this and a little dab of that." 

But Thin Or Curvaceous, Karen Morley 
understands the secret of attraction. 
All of us have seen the theory work out in 
practice, but never had I heard it voiced 
more concisely than by Miss Morley. 

Said Karen, "If a woman isn't pretty, 
acting attractive will fool people into 
thinking ' she is. Unrelenting attention to 
detail, perfect grooming and perfect make- 
up will pass for beauty ninety-nine times 
out of a hundred. 

"Changing one's appearance is most 
easily accomplished by changing the style 
of hah' dress. Because my face is long 
and thin, I wear my hair fluffy to give my 
face width. And to keep it fluffy, my hair 
must be washed twice a week. 

"The proper application of powder, 
rouge and lipstick can work marvelous 
transformations. No longer is the art of 
make-up a secret hocus-pocus of the 
actress. Any girl who will take the trouble 
to experiment in the placement of rouge 
and lipstick can minimize her facial de-

flowing- freely, your food doesn't digest. It just 
decays in the bowels. Gas bloats up your stomach. 
You get constipated. Your whole system is poi-

looks punk.

two pounds of bile flowing freely and make you

What They're Shooting 

(Continued from piise tliirt j -six) 

give the comedians lessons in wit and 

We'd like to tell something of the really 
amazing sets used in this picture, such as 
the Coral Cove night club which is com- 
pletely surrounded by tanks of swimming 
fish — and of the amazing, original orches- 
tras and musical numbers which are the 
brain children of Lou Brock, the same 
producer who put on Flying Down To 
Rio and made Ginger Rogers and Fred 
Astaire the talk of the country over night. 

But we really didn't have much time to 
see them — as the company's playful come- 
dians were in full bloom the day we man- 
aged to get in, and we didn't dare turn 
our back to them, even if we had wanted 
to — which we did not. So, if you want to 
know what really went on in front of the 
camera, you'll just naturally have to pay 
the price of admission to do it, as all our 
time was spent watching what was going 
on off stage. 

One In A Million 

A million-dollar ice-skating extrava- 
ganza produced in a land where it never 
snows and where zero weather is some- 
thing that seems unreal when read about 
in newspaper headlines! 

That is One in a Million, in which Twen- 
tieth Century-Fox debuts the ice-skating 
queen and winter Olympics champion, 
Sonja Henie, in her own element. 

To do it the studio had to build a rink 
of 12.000 square feet on a sound stage. 
Under it ten and a half miles of one and 
a quarter inch pipe has been laid to freeze 
and keep frozen the tons of water on the 
lake-like basin. It took three days to 
freeze the rink. 

With this rink and Sonja Henie, Darryl 
Zanuck, dynamic and irrepressible vice- 
president in charge of all Twentieth Cen- 
tury-Fox production, is able to accom- 
plish the ultimate in creative ballet art 
... to transfer rhythmical dance steps to 
the one perfect medium, ice. 

The slight but inevitable jerky inter- 
ruptions of the dance while changing 
steps is eliminated. Ice-dancing gives the 
perfect illusion of flow and rhythm. And 
Sonja, figure-skating champion of the 
world, has studied ballet in London under 
the famous Russian, Madame Karsavin. 
She has been acclaimed by critics for 
translating the Dying Swan dance into a 
dance on ice-skates. 

But it was not as easy as that. Sonja 
had to train her own chorus. Enough 
heat-pampered Southern Calif ornians 
knew how to skate, all right, but only a 
dozen of the hundreds of skaters turning 
out for chorus parts could keep in time 
with the music. 

Feeling that rhythm is inherent in a 
person whereas ice-skating can be taught, 
Sonja and Jack Haskell, noted dance di- 
rector, turned to regular film chorus 
dancers. Sonja became her own ballet 
master for the nonce and spent two hours 
daily training her eighty chorines to skate. 
In five weeks they became experts. 

It is 94 deg. hot outside. We are on 
the set, in the air-conditioned sound stage, 
gratified that it is 45 deg. where we are, 
with the skaters only competing with 32 
deg. Sonja is doing "The Moonlight 
Waltz" with a chorus of 42 beauties in 
pink costumes trimmed with ermine, and 
42 boys. The costumes cost $425 each, 
while Henie enters with a beautiful cape 
which it took ten hand-beaders a week to 

make. The ten-yards-long robe made of 
iris and sequins and bordered with ermine 
is carried in train by six pageboy skaters. 
The cape is insured for $5000. 

They do the long, graceful sweeps of 
the waltz to the perfect tuning by Lew 
Pollack and Sidney D. Mitchell. It is the 
first time we have ever seen such a thing 
on skates — a very original idea executed 
in a manner which is fitting tribute to the 
venturesomeness of Zanuck. After the 
dancing, with not a scuffle to invade the 
music, Henie does some of those thrilling 
speed-tricks of hers. 

No woman skater is skillful enough, so 
she has to have a male stand-in for the 
skating scenes. He is Bert Clark, skating 
teacher and once ice-skating champion of 
Canada. He is Miss Henie's height 5' 2" 
and at 117 pounds outweighs her only by 
seven. He has to do stunning speeds at 
times and stop suddenly at definite points 
to enable cameramen to focus. 

The ice rink is respectively made the 
center of an idyllic lake in a small Swiss 
village; of a fashionable St. Moritz resort; 
of the ice stadium where the 1936 Winter 
Olympics were held at Garmisch-Parten- 
kirchen; and of Madison Square Garden, 
New York. The carpenters are kept busy 
changing the surroundings. Ice-skating 
is definitely the action center of the pic- 

But the skating is surrounded with 
comedy furnished by Adolphe Menjou as 
head of a troupe of entertainers including 
Arline Judge, Dixie Dunbar, Leah Ray, 
and the sensational three Ritz Brothers. 
Don Ameche, the newspaper reporter, 
furnished the love interest with Henie. 

College Holiday 

On location with Paramount's College 
Holiday troupe we found that comedians 
can sometimes be even funnier off stage 
than when before the camera. And plenty 
of fireworks is kept exploding by the 
combination of Martha Raye, Jack Benny, 
George Burns and Gracie Allen and Mary 
Boland all cooperating to make the same 

It is a Paramount musical comedy ex- 
travaganza, probably the best yet with 
five major sets and enough expensive ma- 
terials to be a bigger picture than Big 
Broadcast oj 1937. Although it is the 
fourth of Paramount's annual collegiate 
comedies, it is unique among college sto- 
ries. Only the first scenes have to do with 
education, and for probably the first time 
in such a yarn there is no football. 

But there is plenty of rah-rah. It starts 
with Marsha Hunt, one of Paramount's 
younger honeys, dancing with Leif Erik- 
son at the college ball before learning 
her father is about to lose his Southern 
California hotel. The script calls for 
Marsha to slap Leif's face when he steals 
a kiss. She did, alright, whopping him so 
hard he had to retire from the shooting 
for a couple of days until his face resumed 
its normal color. The hilarity really gets 
under way when Mary Boland, cuckoo 
faddist who is backing the efforts of a 
health cultist, encounters Jack Benny, 
wrapped in sheets. He is fleeing through 
the woods after dispossession as manager 
of the hotel. She, of course, thinks he 
also is a cultist so enlists his aid in a fan- 
tastic scheme to attempt eugenic mating, 
using college boys and girls as guinea pigs 
in the experiment. But we won't tell you 
the details of the resulting mixup here.

Fm A Fugitive From The Quints 

(Continued from page twenty-four) 

Why didn't I take them sternly in hand, 
you ask, as I would be wont to do with 
some of my Hollywood children when they 
wouldn't do what they were told? 

For the simple reason that the Dionne 
Quintuplets are not as other children. 
They are the "sweethearts of the world." 
Marie, Annette, Cecile, Yvonne and 
Emelie are far too precious in value to the 
world to be "bossed" at this time by any 
one individual. 

But, from the viewpoint of a motion pic- 
ture director, this "set-up" is one tough 
job. As an average man and father, as 
well as a motion picture director, I looked 
forward with the keenest anticipation to 
actually seeing and knowing the Dionne 
Quintuplets — in person. (I look upon 
them as the Eighth Wonder of the world.) 
And, now that it is all over, I can truth- 
fully say that it was an even more re- 
markable experience than I had dreamed. 
But, my friends, as a job it was full of 

I thought I knew almost everything 
there was to know about kids. 
I knew all the answers! 
Directing children humanly, antici- 
pating their every whim, expectation of 
problem, sympathizing and understanding 
them — it was duck-soup to me. 

In short, I was ready for the Dionne 

Or, at least, I thought I was ready for 

In a way, one might say that they took 
me in charge the very moment I arrived 
on the scene at the hospital where they 
reside on the outskirts of the little town 
of Callander, Ontario, Canada. 

The Dionne Quintuplets have been 
looked at, and they have looked at hun- 
dreds of thousands of people in their short 
lives. Not only are they better known to 
the world than any children that have ever 
lived, but they have been seen by more 
human beings. Curious, intensely inter- 
ested tourists come from all over the civil- 
ized world, just to see the Quints. Think 
of it! 

Yet they have more privacy than Greta 
Garbo, or, the Rajah of a fabulously 
wealthy Indian province. 

Limited to an hour a day, I must admit 
that we were terrifically handicapped in 
"shooting" scenes with the Quints. Never 
having been disciplined, it was only 
natural that the little minxes did exactly 
as they pleased. If I particularly wanted 
the entire group in a scene, invariably one 
would have nothing to do with the idea, 
and by the time I might get the recalci- 
trant one persuaded, Doctor Dafoe would 
walk in, pull out his watch and say, 
"That's all for today, boys." 

My oral persuasive powers were limited, 
too, as I speedily discovered that the 
Quints didn't care much for my alleged 
French, nor for my lullabies. 

Finally, I gave up directing them. One 
day I discovered that, like Baby LeRoy, 
they liked to pull off my glasses and throw 
them on the floor. 

Or, my watch did just as well. And, 
they liked to tweak Jean Hersholt's mus- 
tache. Immediately I acquired all sorts 
of "prop" glasses and watches, but poor 
Jean had to 'wear his own mustache. 

Even though I couldn't appeal to their 

sense of discipline et cetera, the fact that 

they reacted to the normal mischievous 

kid spirits saved the day. 

From the time I discovered this, I let 

From Hollywood to Callander, Canada, came 
these stars to make the second Dionne quintup- 
let picture: Rochelle Hudson, Jean Hersholt 
and Dorothy Peterson 

the Dionne Quints "direct" me. They had 
their own way, we got the picture and we 
all had a lot of fun. 

Usually the joke was on me, but in the 
end, it was worth it. 

Getting Them to Bed 

Only once did I out-smart them. It was 
necessary to get a scene of them all going 
to bed together. The Quints have a very 
amusing habit of all racing for their beds 
simultaneously and plunging into them hit 
or miss. 

But, when they were supposed to quiet 
down and go to sleep, up they jumped, and 
away. I tore my hair frantically over this 
scene. It seemed impossible to get until 
I suddenly remembered that we were 
trying to film this scene in the late 
morning, after they had enjoyed a full 
night's sleep. They were wide awake, full 
of fire, and they didn't want to even pre- 
tend to go to sleep. So, I simply waited 
until the hour for their nap for my hour 
of "shooting" — and that was that. 

However, they got me in the end. 
Doctor Dafoe permitted the installation of 
a new wading pool for the Quints. A scene 
of them all wading would be cute. I 
should have known better. While trying 
to lure them all in at the same time, Marie, 
the clown of the troupe, decided that she 
wanted me to get in, too. 

Off came the Taurog shoes and stock- 
ings, to the amusement of the crew and 
the nurses. But, that was only the start. 
The rest of the Quints caught on immed- 


Picture the scene of a rotund, erstwhile 
dignified director sitting in a wading pool 
while five delighted little girls gleefully 
poured water down his back! 

We couldn't "shoot" with me in the 

At the moment I had the Quints per- 
suaded to play in the pool by themselves, 
while I made movies, Doctor Dafoe 
popped in to announce: 

"Sorry, boys, time's up. No more pic- 

The next day the weather turned cold, 
and "we never did get the scene. 

This is one of the many reasons why I 
am a fugitive from the Quints!

Karen Morley's Beauty Quest 

(Continued from page fifty-nine) 

Lliane in Garbo's Inspiration and it was 
from Greta Garbo herself that Karen 
learned an eye make-up trick which she 
still uses. This is how it's done: 

With an eyebrow pencil draw a fine line 
the full length of the upper lid as close as 
possible to the upper lashes. Extend this 
line down at the outer corner of the lid 
about an eighth of an inch — and not more 
than a quarter of an inch. Then starting 
from the center of the lower lashes draw 
a line to meet the line drawn down from 
the upper lid. This forms a tiny triangle 
at the outer corner of the eye and makes 
the eye itself appear much larger and 
longer. The penciled lines should be softly 
blended with the fingertips to avoid any 
suggestion of harshness. Mascara is then 
applied to the upper lashes. 

Hollywood Is Fast gaining a reputation 
of authority on cosmetics as well as 
on fashion. And from the many letters I 
receive asking for the names of prepara- 
tions used by motion picture players, it 
would seem that girls now look to their 
favorite stars to guide them to new beauty 
as well as new styles. 

Duart's Creme of Milk answers the three- 
way demands of an all purpose face cream 

Creme of Milk is one of the recently 
offered beauty aids to merit the stamp of 
star approval. This all-purpose cream 
manufactured by Duart brings us in de- 
lightful modern guise one of the oldest 
known skin beautifiers — the oils present 
in milk or cream. These rich oils serve 
as a lubricant to the skin and make Creme 
of Milk effective as a night cream and 
powder base as well as an excellent 
cleanser. A two-ounce jar costs 50 cents 
and the five-ounce jar, one dollar. 

Combining the natural color tones of 
their dry type rouge with the permanency 
of their cream type, the Hudnut Company 
are now offering the new Gemey Moist 
Rouge. It is blended on the cheeks with 
the cushion tip of the finger and there it 
stays until removed with cold cream or 
soap and water. A companion to the 
Gemey Moist Rouge is the Gemey Nu- 
Slide Lipstick, a new formula in a new 
container. Both rouge and lipstick come 
in a galaxy of enticing shades and the 
price is 75 cents each. 

Everyone loves a bargain — and a bar- 
gain in eye beauty is that tricky little 
gadget called the Winx Eyelash Comb and 
Mascara Applicator. It accomplishes four 
distinct operations with one fell swoop — 
and what more could one ask of any 
gadget priced at only 10 cents! The comb- 
applicator is curved to the shape of the 
eyelid and is used by spreading a thin line 
of Winx Creamy Mascara along the center 
of the tiny teeth and then pushing upward 
through the lashes. The mascara is evenly 
applied, the lashes curled upward, with 
each lash separated and all excess mascara 
removed. As if that weren't enough, the 

Winx Creamy Mascara, in four shades, lends 
a silky, natural beauty to the eyelashes 

combing actually helps to stimulate the 
growth of the lashes. Winx Creamy Mas- 
cara comes in four shades — black, blue, 
brown and green — and the price is 10 cents 
for the small size or 50 cents for large size 

Do you perspire in the wintertime? 
That question probably sounds pretty silly 
to those of you hugging the radiator these 
cold nights. But that's just the trouble — 
you do hug the radiator and you do per- 
spire even though it may be imperceptible 
to you, storing up offensive odors and 
underarm stains in woolen dresses and 
proudly knit sweaters. So if you don't 
want to be unknowingly cheated of your 
right to daintiness, use a non-perspirant 
as regularly as you would in the balmy 
days of summer. 

Taboo (and isn't that a descriptive 
name?) is a new cream non-perspirant 
put up in a white jar with rose cap and 
label. It will give you the necessary year 
'round protection and is simplicity itself 
to use. Just apply it with the fingertips 
and rub in gently until it disappears, the 
amount depending on the effect desired. 
Like any other non-perspirant it should 
not, of course, be used for twenty-four 
hours following the use of a depilatory. 

Last Minute Christmas Note! If you 
happen to be scurrying about for that ons 
more Christmas gift, don't overlook Wris- 
ley's Bath Superbe Set. This is a grand 
value at $1 to delight a girl or woman of 
any age. There are two huge bars of soap 
and large box of dusting powder with its 
own downy puff, attractively packed in 
pink and gold gift carton. Available in 
Jasmine, Gardenia and Rose. 

Gifts of beauty are the answer to all 

Protect personal daintiness the year 'round 
with Taboo, new cream non-perspirant 

sorts of Christmas problems. You can find 
at the cosmetic counter gifts for mother, 
sister, girl friend or sweetheart, all smartly 
packaged in gay holiday boxes. Best of all, 
the price range is so great that you may 
select a remembrance to fit the fattest or 
the slimmest purse. Perfumes, powder, 
creams, manicure kits are just a few of the 
items which will prove infallible gift

Brief Film Guide 


Charge of the Light Brigade — (Warners) 
— Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Patric 
Knowles, C. Henry Gordon. Rousing and 

Libeled Lady— (M-G-M)— Four stars: 
Jean Harlow, William Powell, Spencer 
Tracy, Myrna Loy. It is high class, rough 
and tumble comedy. 

Gay Desperado — (Pickf ord-Lasky) — 
Something entirely different in the musi- 
cal line. Features Nino Martini, Leo Car- 
rillo, Ida Lupino. 

Romeo and Juliet— (M-G-M) — Shakes- 
peare's most famous bit of hack writing, 
superbly improved by the presence of 
Norma Shearer and great cast. 

Dodsworth — (Goldwyn) — You'll rave 
about this one. Walter Huston grabs top 
honors, closely followed by Mary Astor, 
Ruth Chatterton. 


Give Me Your Heart — (Warners) — A 
Kay Francis picture to make the women 
sob. And how the ladies will sniffle! 

My Man Godfrey — (Universal) — Just 
about tops in comedy, with Carole Lom- 
bard and William Powell. 

Swing Time— (RKO)— Fred Astaire and 
Ginger Rogers continue along the melody 
lanes with a vengeance. 

Big Broadcast of 1937 — (Paramount) — 
Not quite up to its predecessors, but satis- 
factory in most respects. Jack Benny. 

Ramona — (20th Century) — Can be 
recommended for its beautiful color treat- 
ment and a model of Technicolor treat- 
ment as it should be. 

Sing, Baby, Sing— (20th Century)— If 
you haven't seen Adolphe Menjou and 
gang in this comedy, look it up at the 
nearest neighborhood theatre. 

Cain and Mabel — (Warners) — If you 
like Marion Davies or Clark Gable, this 
picture might prove entertaining. 

Previewing the

original story to RKO. Now she is busy 
writing another book based on the trial 
of the attorney who was convicted. 

Night Waitress comes to the screen as 
moderate entertainment. Margot 
Grahame is cast as the waitress at a 
waterfront cafe on probation after pre- 
vious trouble. She is drawn into a gold 
theft by circumstance, and knows the 
location of the hidden treasure. Fleeing 
aboard a boat with Gordon Jones, playing 
the role of a genial smuggler, she attempts 
to straighten out the situation. 

Both Miss Grahame and Mr. Jones 
handle satisfactorily enough whatever 
the picture demands of them. 


(RKO) — This picture deserves merit for 
the realism and authenticity 
which is its k e y-n o t e 
throughout. Written by 
David Lamson while he 
awaited execution, it depicts 
the horrors and extreme sus- 
pense endured by those in 
"condemned row." Touches 
We Who Are About to Die is obviously 
greatly Actionized, but brings to the screen 
very impressively the physical as well as 
the mental cruelty of prison life. John 
Beal, Preston Foster, Ann Dvorak are 

Metro's "storm troops" move into the 
scene again, and as in Libeled 
Lady, they take full control 
of the situation with a bar- 
rage of laughs. Picture 
Franchot Tone and Clark 
Gable as rival Europeon cor- 
respondents for American 
newspapers, and Joan 
Crawford as the million-heiress who 
hates all reporters. With this premise 
you have a good start on a rollicking 
yarn, bound to click regardless of illogi- 
cal situations. When Gable, suppressing 
his own identity, helps Joan flee from 
the rival reporter, an obvious day of reck- 
oning is in the offing. The adventures 
that follow are funny and fully satisfy- 

Joan Crawford is given an excellent 
opportunity to reveal her loveliness as 
well as have a strong hand in the comedy. 
Gable's antics are screamingly funny, yet 
he is hard pressed by Tone throughout 
the picture. 

of the several wonders of the screen is 
Eleanor Powell, whose scin- 
tillating feet can tap an aver- 
age audience into a trance 
without the slightest effort. 
Miss Powell succeeds in doing 
just exactly that in Born to 
Dance, Metro's latest and 
musical show. 
Besides Miss Powell's dancing, there 
is a bevy of entertainment — gorgeous 
stage settings that will make you fairly 
gasp with astonishment, a very accepta- 
ble story and a fine supporting cast. 
Never miserly with names, M-G-M brings 
such personalities into the picture as 
James Stewart, Una Merkel, Frances 
Langford, Alan Dinehart, Virginia Bruce, 
Raymond Walburn, Buddy Ebsen.

Dr. H. L. Shoub. New York, reports: "In 
addition to intestinal cleansing, Adlerika 
greatly reduces bacteria and colon bacilli." 

Mrs. Jas. Filler: "Gas on my stomach was so 
bad I could not eat or sleep. Even my heart seemed 
to hurt. The first dose of Adlerika brought me 
relief. Now I eat as I wish, sleep fine and never 
felt better." 

Give your bowels a REAL cleansing with Adlerika 
and see how good you feel. Just ONE dose relieves 
GAS and constipation. At all Leading Druggists.

room rug. It was really very discourag- 

Then came a note from the City Fathers 
saying that she'd have to get rid of Ed- 
mund and his chickens . . . the neighbors 
were complaining. Carole cried a little 
about it, but civilization is civilization, and 
the three had to go. She gave them to a 
friend in the country, but came back with 
two baby ducks in their place. 

The ducks don't quack yet so they're 
safe for a while. Still they don't take the 
place of Edmund, Ellie and Jessie. Every 
now and then Carole pays them a Sunday 
visit . . . and now she's talking quite seri- 
ously of building a ranch in the valley, 
"So I can have my friends, my real friends 
with me!" Yep, a little animal-goofy, just 
like IRENE. 

Gifts for No Reason at All 

The end of the picture, however, in 
which IRENE carries coals to Newcastle — 
in the form of large baskets of food to 
GODFREY who runs a night club and 
whose larder is very well stocked, thank 
you — really bore the greatest resemblance 
of all to Carole's own antics. 

In fact people who know her and to 
whom she has brought gifts — and that in- 
cludes practically everyone in Hollywood 
— simply couldn't get «over the familiar 
feeling that scene gave them. As though 
it were actually one from Carole's life . . . 
for to put it simply, Carole is this kind of 
girl: if you happen to mention that you 
like gardenias, Carole will send you some 
— not two, but dozens and dozens! She is 
also the kind of girl, who, upon going to 
the mountains for a week's rest and re- 
treat, returns with bushel basketsful of 
pine cones for everybody. Such is her 
natural generosity. She loves pine cones 
to burn in her fireplace, but wouldn't 
think of having pine cones for her fire- 
place without also supplying pine cones 
for her mother's fireplace, for her friends' 
fireplace, for her cameraman's fireplace, 
for her make-up girl's fireplace, and so on 
down the list. For days after a Lombard 
trip to the mountains the air over Holly- 
wood is filled with the fragrance of the 
forest primeval, the murmuring pines and 
the hemlocks! 

And so it goes . . . bundles and baskets 
and gifts . . . they are as much a part of 
her as her grand laugh and her scintillat- 
ing manner. To her, holidays have no sig- 
nificance except as gift-giving days, and 
with this thought in view she insists on 
celebrating all of them . . . even Wash- 
ington's Day, Valentine's Day, Columbus 
Day, and down to even the state holidays. 
Whoever is lucky enough to be dining at 
THE FARM on one of these evenings al- 
ways gets a present. 

Nor does Carole ever go shopping for 
herself without bringing something home 
for someone. Just recently she told 
Fieldsie, her friend and secretary, that she 
thought we'd run down town and buy a 
hat. She was gone three hours and came 
back loaded with packages. "What kind 
of a hat did you get?" Fieldsie wanted to 
know. Carole looked blank. "Gee, I for- 
got ft. But look, Fieldsie, I got a cute blue 
mirror for your room . . . thought it would 
look nice with your blue curtains. Oh! 
and wait until you see what I bought for 
the menagerie. Look! Smell! Perfumed 
flea powder! Isn't that marvelous! 

"And. look, the cutest sleeping baskets 
for each of them. Come on! Let's see 

how they like them. And, oh, wait till you 
see what I brought Ellie. She'll die! 
She'll just die! I got it because she was 
so sweet about baking all those cakes I 
took on the set last week!" 

Never a thought for the hat she didn't 
buy — which is typical of Carole. 

SI12 Loves to Pretend 

Another very real Carole trick which 
Carole betrayed in her portrayal of Irene 
is her very keen delight in pretending. 
Irene only played possum on the couch in 
that one scene when she grew hysterical 
and had to be entertained by the monkey- 
shines of Mischa Auer, but the real life 
Carole is always thus fooling her friends, 
End just to make monkeys out of them 
too. Particularly on the telephone. 

Ring Carole's and what would seem to 
be a Filipino houseboy answers. "Mhs'e 
Lombard no home. Missie Lombard go 
kill somebody today mebbe. You give me 
message. Well, I don't know, she say she 
have to shoot today. Oh, pictures? Well, 
I don't know, mebbe, yes, mebbee. She 
say mebbee they shoot late tonight. Well, 
you give me message ... I tell heem. Ha! 
I fooled you, didn't I?" The Lombard 
voice comes down an octave or two and 
her wild laugh ripples over the wire at 

Or maybe another time it's the voice of 
a Swedish cook. Or sometimes it's a very 
lifelike imitation of Ellie, who usually 
answers the phone, and sometimes it is 
Ellie and you think it's only Carole kid- 
ding and then it's all very confusing, and 
you don't know who you're talking to and 
finally you give up and bang the receiver 
down. And a minute later Carole is on 
the phone: "Ha! we fooled you, didn't 
we?" and you don't know whether she 
did, or Ellie did, and it's still very con- 
fusing. Mad, in fact, very mad . . . much 
like the household of which IRENE was a 

Lovable madcap clown . . . enthusiastic 
about everybody, everything ... as vola- 
tile and changeable as the elements . . . 
not the worldly sophisticate that we have 
sometimes been led to believe she is in 
some of her pictures. She doesn't even 
talk like a high-fallutin' movie star with 
the usual "Oh, deahs!" and "You don't say 
so's!" With little-girl grimaces Carole 
goes around Hollywood saying, "Yah, yah, 
yah!" and " 'ello, naow!" This is CarcZa 
as we have seldom seen her.

Irene Dunne: A "Lady " No Longer 

(Continued from page thirty-two) 

know her as something of a cut-up. Al- 
though she seldom attends parties or gives 
them, she has many an informal evening 
in her home, and when among her in- 
timates avoids entirely the somewhat 
austere lady title that has been foisted 
upon her. Her pantomime is best when 
she turns to comedy. It has been a parlor 
tradition for years around the homes of 

Irene is a living comedy herself when 
you get her to talking about this new 
dwelling of hers on the hills overlooking 
the sea. Having harbored a desire for 
years to furnish her own home, Irene set 
about it a few weeks ago and now wishes 
she had never considered the matter. 

A Hectic Existence 

Her existence for days and weeks was 
a maze of carpenter's tools, decorator's 
paints and houseman's hammers. She has 
looked at pictures on the walls to the point 
that she sees them in the night. Carpets 
and tapestries have resolved themselves 
into an indiscriminate splash of blues, 
rusts and whatnots. 

While we were visiting her she took us 
into the dining room, showed two portraits 
made for the studio on rush orders by 
Miss Jerry Mulligan, a young Los Angeles 
artist. Both of them were adequate studio 
poster jobs, not intended for much more. 
Irene was tempted to hang one of them, 
but she wasn't sure. We advised her to 
do it, then told her to ask an expert. (And 
haven't heard the outcome of the matter 


An "Ancient" Garden 

She took us into the garden. It looked 
like it had been there not less than a year. 
We said so. 

The grass was green and thick. 

The shrubbery was a mass of flowers. 

The hedge was six feet high and per- 
fect — except in one spot. 

Irene arched her delicate brows, waved 
at the hedge. 

"That hedge is a problem," she said. "It 

Informality was the keynote to Irene Dunne's 

latest picture — and it delighted her beyond 

words. Underneath that calm exterior is a 

rollicking spirit! 

r -r.^ 

A fashion expert talks with one of the best 

dressed women in Hollywood! Sally Martin, 

HOLLYWOOD'S fashion editor, visits Miss 

Dunne on the set 

has been there as long as the garden and 
grass. About three months, I'd say. But 
we can't make it grow in that one spot. 
Everything we put there is sort of — aller- 
gic — to the soil. The hedge, in its own 
way, sniffles and wheezes, then gives up 
the struggle. I don't know what to do 
about it. Why, even a mathematician 
would be at sixes and sevens." 

The doghouse is on the patio. For Irene, 
when Dr. Griffin, her husband, is away, 
feels a measure of reassurance with the 
dog close by. He is a bounding police dog 
who treats guests cordially enough, but 
stares insolently if not malevolently at 
utter strangers. His allegiance is totally 
to Miss Dunne and her personal maid. All 
others are courteously endured or forcibly 
rejected. The dog is all right. 

Among Famous Neighbors 

This is the home of a beautiful star, amid 
other homes equally inviting despite a 
comparative solitude. Her next door 
neighbor is Raquel Torres, and next to her 
is the magnificent home built by Claudette 
Colbert just before her marriage to Dr. 
Pressman. Here, in Holmby Hills, they 
dwell in the rather vain hope of attaining 
obscurity, a star's most precious posses- 

Irene hopes, as autumn slips away into 
a California winter, to have her home 
completely decorated. Sometimes she 
thinks this hope is doomed to be never 
totally fulfilled. So many things have been 
delayed or done wrong. 

But you can be sure that when the job 
is finally finished, it will have been a good 
one, done in utterly fine taste. It will be 
a home friends will love to visit, to sit 
beside the fireplace and reminisce while 
the flames flicker shadows into the room 
and lend little crackles to the conversa- 

When that moment is attained, Irene 
Dunne will be a happy woman. 



Do You Do with 
Your Little Finger? 

— when you pick up a glass or cup? . . . You know from 
watching others that charm and poise can be destroyed 
instantly by the misuse of hands. And by the same 
token, the correct use of your hands can become a tre- 
mendous social and business asset. Great actresses 
accomplish much of their poise by proper hand action. 
The makers of Frostilla— the famous skin lotion that 
keeps hands, face and body smooth and lovely— asked 
Margery Wilson, the international authority on charm 
and poise, to tell 

• how to hold a cigarette 

• how to pick up cards 

• how to shake hands 

• and how to make hands behave to the 
best advantage on all occasions 

Margery "Wilson gives the authoritative answers to 
these and other questions in an illustrated booklet on 
How to Use Your Hands Correctly. Although this 
booklet is priced at 50c, we have arranged to present 
it without charge to Frostilla users in the United States 
and Canada until May 30th, 1937.

The Man Who Acts With His Voice! 

(Continued from page twenty-six) 

He's a quiet, serious lad, who has inher- 
ited a lot of Italian characteristics from his 
dad. He likes to go home, after his day's 
work is done, and get into some comfort- 
able things and go sit on the porch. He'd 
rather get some pals and play ten-cent- 
limit poker than dress up in tails and 
knock the femmes at the Trocadero for a 
row of heartbeats. As a matter of fact, he 
isn't at all interested in girls — -he's got the 
greatest one in the world all to himself. 
Anyway, he says so, and that's all that 
matters to Don. 

Her name is Honore. It used to be 
Honore Prendergast, but it's Honore 
Ameche, now. He first met her in Du- 
buque, when Father Sheehy, pastor of the 
Church of the Nativity there, introduced 
them. Don was living there then, working 
at one of those early odd-jobs of his — he 
doesn't quite remember whether it was 
the time he was cement-bag-lifter-on- 
trucks, or on the city gang that was 
rounding square street corners, or a 
puddler in a road gang, or when he was 
working in a mattress factory — he's held 
all those jobs, among others. But he does 
remember that that was where he first met 
Honore. They liked each other, but that 
was all that came of it, then. 

Six years later, a friend of his in Chi- 
cago, where Don had become a radio star, 
introduced him to a girl, who was making 
a name for herself as a dietician. It was 
Honore Prendergast again. Two months 
later, they went to Dubuque together, and 
Father Sheehy married them. Now Hon- 
ore's no longer a dietician — except, maybe, 
for Don Ameche, Junior, who's three years 
old, and Ronald, who isn't a year old, yet. 
Don (papa, I mean) won't let Honore 
dietish for him — he likes chicken caccia- 
tore, and beer, and lots of spaghetti, and 
wine, too well. And things like that aren't 
tolerated by dieticians. 

Nevertheless, as Mrs. Honore Ameche, 
Don is utterly crazy about her. To him, 
she's the most important thing in the 
world — oh, next to Don and Ronald, 
maybe. Among the traits he inherited 
from his dad is that fierce, all-consuming 
family pride that is a marked characteris- 
tic of the Italian people. 

Migration to the Valley 

For his dad and mother — they're both 
still alive — Don has purchased a place out 
in San Fernando Valley, a score of miles 
from Hollywood, where they can live in 
peace and comfort and even luxury. Don 
was living in Beverly Hills, then. He'd 
heard that's where movie stars are sup- 
posed to live. 

But he liked San Fernando Valley so 
much after he'd established his parents 
there, that he bought a nine-acre place of 
his own. It's got a nice house, some 
orange trees, and a tennis court. It gives 
lots of room for the two kids, for Honore, 
and for Don himself to do one of the things 
he loves to do most — sleep in the sun. He 
does it out there, whenever the studio lets 
him have the time. 

Get excited? Never! That is one Italian 
characteristic Don Ameche never did in- 
herit. He takes life as it comes, is happy 
over his good fortune, and plans to make 
the most of it. Temperament is a word 
that doesn't even mean anything to 
him. He's the easiest-to-handle new star 
they've ever known in Hollywood, say 
those who have to work with him. No 

For three years "Sheila," a beautiful Irish set- 
ter, has been Don Ameche's constant compan- 
ion. That's because they both are home lovers 

matter what he's told to do, he does it with 
a smile. 

That smile, by the way, is one of his two 
greatest assets. The other is his voice. 
The voice is the greater of the two. It is 
that voice that makes Don Ameche. 

You see, it's his voice that he acts with. 

And there, by the way, is the first mani- 
festation of a new trend in movies. The 
talkies have learned that an actor can act 
almost entirely with his voice, if he knows 
how — and so they're just beginning to 
import from the radio dramatic actors, in- 
stead of singers, crooners. Don Ameche, 
you know, is no radio crooner — he is one 
of radio's foremost dramatic stars. 

A Versatile Voice 

To achieve that, he had to learn to do 
with his voice alone, all the things that 
other actors, who are seen by their audi- 
ences, do with their hands, their move- 
ments, their faces. All Don could project, 
over the mike, was that voice — they 
couldn't see his gestures, or facial expres- 

And so, in six years of steadily in- 
creasing radio fame, he learned to use that 
voice for every emotion, every effect he 
wanted to put over. And it was that voice- 
expertness that challenged Zanuck that 
day, from the radio. And today, when 
you next see Don Ameche in a screen- 
feature, try this trick- 
Close your eyes. Stop looking at him, 
and just listen to him for awhile. And 
you'll find out that you can follow the 
action of the scenario just as perfectly, 
through Don Ameche's vocal wizardry, as 
though you were watching with both eyes! 
That is a new kind of acting for Holly- 
wood — and it's a gift from radio to movies, 
since movies have learned not to battle 
against radio, but to play ball with it. 

Incidentally, I may tell you, here, that 
one of Hollywood's veteran sound-mixers, 
who has heard most of the stars of the 
screen and radio, said the other night, 
after sitting at the dials through an 
Ameche broadcast, that Don's voice is the 

Accept No Substitutes! Always Insist on the Advertised Brand! 

most perfect microphone voice he has ever 
heard, in or out of Hollywood. 

But I started to tell you about Don's 
rmile, didn't I? That smile is a magic 
thing. In repose, Don's face is just a face 
— not strikingly good-looking, not out of 
the ordinary enough to make you turn for 
a second look. But when he smiles — .' 

Then an amazing change comes over 
that face. No longer is it ordinary. It 
becomes a reflection of a warmth, of a hap- 
piness, of a human love, of an inner fire 
that is unquenchable. It is then that you 
see, visually, the Ameche that is destined 
to become famous. It is in that smile, as 
in the voice, that the "slow-take" Ameche 
personality is most manifest. It is when 
he smiles and speaks to you that Ameche 
begins to capture you. 

They All Like Him 

It's not a "prop smile," this one of 
Ameche's. It isn't a thing learned from 
standing before a mirror and trying out 
this kind of smile or that — as other actors 
have to do. It isn't a studied smile at all — 
it's just Don Ameche's smile. Behind 
it lies that which makes Don Ameche 
want to know, when he meets a person, 
how that person's family is getting along, 
how the world is treating him. Here again 
is no forced, affected heartiness. It's just 
natural. The gang on the studio stages 
Hke Ameche. He chins with them by the 
hour — about ordinary things like their 
babies, their wives, their automobiles, 
their little problems and worries, their 
little happinesses and hopes. 

"I don't know why or how it is, but I 
get talking with Ameche," a set worker 
told me the other day, "and before I know 
it, Fm pouring out my heart's secrets to 
him. The other guys around here tell me 
the same thing." 

Tve yet to hear anyone say an unkind 
word about Don. That's strange, in Holly- 
wood, where the hammers ring louder, too 

often, than praise. Maybe, as Don be- 
comes more famous, the anvil chorus will 
begin. But from all the scores of men and 
women who have met him, and who work 
with him day in and day out, I've heard 
nothing but admiration, praise, liking for 
this young Italian lad. 

Yet, he doesn't go around asking their 
friendship. He's no party-hound; you 
won't see him at the night clubs, and the 
whoop-te-do affairs of Hollywood. His 
intimates are, for the most part, the radio 
crowd. Don is still too new in movies, and 
too much of a veteran of the broadcasting 
studios, to change his crowd so easily. 

Perpetual Open House 

At home, he and Honore don't throw big 
parties. But you can always find open 
house there, if you've met Don. He likes 
to have acquaintances drop in. He likes 
to talk with them. And there's always a 
glass of wine, or some cold beer. 

Hobbies, he has none — unless it's his 
family. Of them, he'll talk by the hour. 
Strange as it may seem after six years in 
that radio field where music dominates in 
all its forms, Don Ameche can't play a 
single musical instrument! He has no 
superstitions, can't think of any pet aver- 
sions or likes — except, maybe, Lily of the 
Valley perfume! 

He has no aspirations for great wealth, 
merely as such. What he wants it for — 
well, the answer came when they gave him 
one of those publicity questionnaires to 
fill out, when he first went to work at 
20th-Fox. He came to the question: 
What is your greatest ambition? Unhesi- 
tatingly, he wrote: 

"To take care of my family." 

He's doing it. 

There was one other question on that 
questionnaire that drew an answer that's 
indicative of Don Ameche. The question 
is: "What is your favorite type of girl?" 

Don wrote: "My wife."

brooded himself into the mood that ended 
in a suicide's passport to the great un- 

Eugene Stark a few years ago was man- 
ager of the Hillcrest Country Club where 
major picture producers played their 
eighteen holes and threw their parties. 
He was so popular and efficient that Joseph 
M. Schenck, then head of United Artists, 
suggested he take over the post of man- 
aging director of the Roosevelt, leading 
hostelry of the flicker village. 

Happily he did so, made it almost over- 
night the rendezvous of the stars, brought 
in name bands like George Olsen, Irving 
Aaronson, and others, and built the 
Roosevelt Blossom Room into an out- 
standing success. 

Chiefs of police, fire chiefs, district at- 
torneys, sheriffs and even the lieutenant 
governor of California made the Roosevelt 
their playground and Hollywood head- 
quarters because they loved little Gene. 

At this writing he is in the San Diego 
county jail, convicted of arson, a crime 
of which all except the San Diego jury 
that convicted him, believe him innocent. 

Famous folks in Hollywood rallied to 
his support, wrote scores of character let- 
ters, and even traveled the 250 miles to 
and from San Diego to testify for him. 

In his possession were honorary badges 
from the Los Angeles police and fire de- 
partment, indicating the esteem in which 
he was held by Angeleno guardians of

But since he came from Hollywood, sup- 
posed sin center of the universe, and was 
not 100 per cent Aryan, and had the 
temerity to invade a sector other than his 
own to open a restaurant during world's 
fair year, a jury of his peers, all San 
Diegans of course, convicted him of setting 
fire to the little cafe which was to have 
been his sole means of livelihood. 

Best bets for 1937: 

Errol Flynn for the popularity 
strides he will make as result of The 
Charge of the Light Brigade. 

Frances Farmer for her dual role in 
Come and Get It. 

Martha Raye, who looks to me like 
the possible logical successor to the 
late Mabel Normand. And there's a 
touch of Marie Dressier in her antics 
as well.

couraged me to play games when I was 
young; but he did insist that whatever 
game I did play, to play it fairly and with 
good sportsmanship. I used to sit beside 
him while he talked by the hour on this 
theme and it gradually became a part of 
my life ... I can take it." 

"How's the missed putt, Florence?" 
Jimmy Stewart, the up-and-coming 
M-G-M star, asked the question as he 
passed by. 

"Well," we said, "how is the missed 

Jimmy Stewart Tattles 

Jimmy must have heard us, for he 
stopped and came back. 

"Like the good sport she is," Jimmy ex- 
plained, "Florence wouldn't tell about it 
— and if she did, she would tell it right. 
She came up to the eighteenth hole a few 
days ago, got on the green in two and her 
first putt stopped not more than six inches 
from the cup. It meant a swell trophy if 
she sunk it, and the putt was so easy 
her opponents conceded. But Florence 
wouldn't pick up her ball. Instead, she 
elected to putt out — and may I never dig 
another divot if she didn't miss! And I 
didn't see her break her putter in two or 
howl to high heavens about her bad luck 
like most men would do — she just took it 
in stride, smiled and said 'you win.' " 

"You said you could take it," we went 
on after Jimmy left. "As a matter of cold 
fact, you don't look as though you've been 
knocked down many times since you won 
the grade school boxing championship. 
And even if you have, the road ahead 
looks pretty smooth, what with M-G-M 
getting ready to boost you still higher up 
the screen ladder." 

"I've had my share of black eyes," she 
smiled. "And I expect many more. Not 
in the literal sense of the word, but they 
hurt just as bad . . ." 

"A girl with good looks . . ." 

Florence cut the inference right in two. 
"There's too much clamor about glamour 
these days," she retorted. "If you don't 

believe it, how about Fontaine, Garbo, 
Cornell, Hayes — they've never won any 
beauty contests, but look where they are." 

What Florence was trying to tell us in 
her own charming and modest way was 
that, despite her beauty, her stage back- 
ground, her talents, she was climbing the 
ladder the hard way — by study, work, and 
a willingness to take the bumps and the 
knocks and come back smiling for more. 

The old paternal influence again. 

Getting back to sports, the young 
M-G-M star plays a driving game of 
tennis, likes golf, enjoys contract bridge, 
dancing, and lately has gone in for Knock- 
knock, Hollywood's latest funny brain- 

She governs herself according to the 
rule of the three "B's" — Be fair, Be 
natural and Behave yourself. She has a 
consuming curiosity about everything. 
Not the snoopy, peek-in-the-corner 
variety, but the reportorial curiosity in- 
herited from her father. 

But here is something! Her private 
hobby, of which she is very proud, but 
inordinately modest, is poetry. So far as 
our survey has taken us, she is the only 
girl in pictures who writes verse. And by 
verse we mean lines that are accepted by 
literary critics as being very first-class 
indeed. Her favorite stage play is Cyrano 
de Bergerac. Among the best screen 
actresses she includes Margaret Sullavan 
and Norma Shearer. Paul Muni and 
Walter Huston rank high on her list of 

Note to Grantland Rice: Your lovely, 
talented daughter, Florence, has just 
finished Sworn Enemy for M-G-M and is 
doing very well in pictures, thank you. 
She now plans on "doing" you in golf 
when you come out here next December. 
That terrible trimming you gave her two 
years ago still rankles in her mind. While 
it's practically none of our business, right 
now she is shooting that old golf ball in 
the low eighties — and on a standard course 
and from the back tees. 

You know the old saying — a tip in time 
may save the first nine. 

Flood Tide for Tracy

to be in Riff Raff with her. She then stated 
she could think of no one opposite whom 
she would rather play. 

Then it happened. The studio had cast 
him opposite Sylvia Sidney in one of those 
Class B pictures all studios pass around to 
fill in the double billings. Not costly and 
not elaborate, the picture was one from 
which little was expected. 

But in Fury Spencer Tracy blossomed 
forth in all his glory. His stunning, pow- 
erful portrayal of a man victimized by 
mob rule made this picture a smash hit. 
No question about it; Spencer Tracy was 

It was clinched with San Francisco. In 
this box office record-breaker he was co- 
starred with Clark Gable and Jeanette 
MacDonald. As ruffian, comedian and 
strong man he had battled his way to the 
top. Now in a sanctified role he almost 

stole a major picture from two stars. In 
the future he was to reach stardom in his 
own right. 

Next he appeared in Libeled Lady, the 
sophisticated comedy hit. Now he is 
starring in Captains Courageous, Rudyard 
Kipling story of Gloucester fishermen, 
and classed as one of the biggest pictures 
of the year. His first picture on the new 
contract which Metro gave him six months 
ahead of time will be They Gave Him a 
Gun. In this he will, for the first time, star 
in his own right. 

The stony, adversity-lined road to star- 
dom has been traversed. With his new 
hobby of yachting, the new ranch he is 
farming with Mrs. Tracy, and the delight 
he gets out of his two growing children, 
Spencer Tracy opens his era as a top-rank 
star. Yet he almost left Hollywood, a 
failure, eighteen months ago!

Why Errol Flynn is Fleeing 

(Continued from page thirty-one) 

Here's Errol Flynn in a scene from Green Light, due for spring release. The faithful 
dog is an important character in the film adaptation of Lloyd C. Douglas 1 famous book 

get some of that restlessness out of his 

Something to Think About 

Warner Brothers might well worry 
about this trip. Why? Because, Errol 
Flynn being what he is, might decide 
never to return to Hollywood and motion 
picture fame. Just like that — with a cool 
snap of his fingers. But he will come 
back. Warners are sure of that. They 
gave him a good reason for returning from 
the land of beyond. 

Several months ago Errol joined Faw- 
cett Writer William Ulman, Jr., in writing 
a story on some of the actor's personal 
adventures before he became a star. The 
title of that picture is The White Rajah. 
The idea came about during a lazy week- 
end in Palm Springs when Ulman was 
visiting Flynn, gathering material for a 
series of stories for Movie Classic. 

Out there in the desert the two remi- 
nisced together. Errol talked about a pic- 
ture he would like to do, a picture full of 
the nostalgia of the South Seas, of thrilling 
incidents from his own life. 

"Why don't we get together and turn 
that story into a scenario?" Ulman asked 
Errol after several hours discussion. 

It was a deal. They worked it out, and 
sold the opus to Warners for a princely 
sum. And that's why the studio is sure 
that Flynn will come back! 

Flynn 's itinerary is the kind you love to 
speculate about. He will take the last 
scheduled steamer run to Tahiti and em- 
bark from there. (After this trip all regu- 
lar ships will dispense with making Tahiti 
a port of call, there not being enough bus- 
iness to make it worth while.) 

What he will do in Tahiti is still as much 
a mystery to Errol as to anyone else. How 
he will leave Tahiti for other islands is a 
matter for fate and time to decide. 

But by and by a tramp steamer, a fishing 
schooner, or some wandering ship will 
drop anchor off the dreamy shores of 
Tahiti, and Flynn will find his time to 
move has come. 

While restlessness is perhaps a prime 
factor in luring Errol away, he has a 
couple of real objectives in his Odyssey. 
Among the countless islands of the South 

Seas mandated to Japan is one particular 
lump of land that catches his fancy. He 
calls it The Lost Island, although of 
course it technically is nothing of the 

On this strange Lost Island, Japan is 
said to have secret fortifications. And 
Nippon is usually extremely reluctant to 
allow visitors within the sacred precincts. 
Nevertheless the intrepid Flynn will visit 
that island shortly, with the official per- 
mission of high Japanese dignitaries. And 
all because Errol, in one of his previous 
advtntures, developed a close friendship 
with a son of one of these influential 

A Lost World 

What Errol wants to see is not any secret 
military outpost, but to delve into the 
mysteries of a lost civilization which once 
flourished on the isle. Here, under the 
perpetual shade of dense palm groves, are 
the ruins of another era, said to rival even 
the mystical Mayan ruins of Central 

That spells adventure to Errol. He is 
taking with him a 16 mm. camera with a 
supply of natural color film. When he 
returns he hopes to have adequate proof 
of another Yesterday in human existence. 

From the Lost Island the actor will 
swing down to the East Indies, a familiar 
sight to him, for it was here that he had 
some of his most exciting adventures 
before he climbed the heights of Holly- 

This country is the background of his 
White Rajah story. So somewhere along 
the line he will pick up a professional 
cameraman likewise afflicted with wan- 
derlust, and film familiar scenes as a basis 
for the actual production. Didn't we tell 
you there was a good reason for Errol to 
come back to Hollywood? 

Yes, Errol will come back, even if it 
wouldn't surprise anyone that he didn't. 

He will make White Rajah and perhaps 
by then he will be willing to settle down 
for awhile. One cannot make any accu- 
rate predictions regarding his future. 
Errol is forever independent. And he 
loves the region "down under," where he 
had his first mad adventures with life.

Training Your Dog the Hollywood Way 

< Continued from page forty) 

start. Then you will never need to in the 

When you see a dog running into the 
street, your pet-loving heart flops and you 
wish you could shout "stop!" and have 
him obey. It's easy, once your dog has 
learned to rush to your side on com- 

Stake your dog out on a 20 foot rope. 
Stand 30 feet away and call him. Just as 
he reaches the end of the rope, tell him 
"stop." If he doesn't, the rope will halt his 
progress. In a few lessons the rope can 
be eliminated and he will freeze in his 
tracks on command. It may save your 
dog's life to know this order. 

One other command is essential for his 
safety. "Heel." Upon this order he walks 
on your left side, his nose close to your 
hand. This trick may be taught by a little 
patient practice, telling him to "heel" each 
time he is close to the proper spot. Hold 
your index finger down at him until he 
has learned to obey implicitly. Later the 
command itself will suffice. Vary it with 
an occasional "all right" which releases 
him to gallop off by himself. 

Limitation of space, of course, prohibits 
our explaining the methods behind all the 
complicated movie tricks, but some of the 
most interesting we'll let Mr. East discuss 
in detail. 

Let's start off with stretching. 

"This lesson is taught by observing the 
dog's natural action, and then giving him 
the cue for it. When your dog stretches 
after a nap, say 'Stretch!' as he performs 
this action. Give him a bit of food and 
say, 'That's right . . . Stretch!' He will 
probably look at you in a bewildered way, 
not knowing what he has done to warrant 
such consideration. 

"Continue to watch closely for another 
stretch. When he stretches again, repeat 
'Stretch!' Feed, pet and show him that 
you're pleased. Don't reprimand him if 
he fails. 

"After giving him this cue for a few 
days, say 'Stretch!' when he is not inclined 
to stretch naturally. If he stretches, re- 
ward him. If he does not you will have 
to continue to catch him in a few more 
natural stretches. He will learn soon what 
you want him to do. 

"Yawning can be taught in the same 
manner. When your pet yawns naturally, 
give him the cue, 'Yawn!' Feed and en- 
courage him by petting until he yawns on 

"If he doesn't get your meaning in this 
way, you can aid him by pressing on each 
side of the mouth until it opens. Then, 
cue him, 'Yawn!' Should it be necessary 
to press his mouth to teach him this lesson, 
you'll find that very little pressure is 

"He will instinctively open it if you 
press lightly and very shortly will be 
yawning upon command." 

Some Movie Dogs 

Mutt, who appeared with Marion Davies 
throughout Peg o' My Heart, was espe- 
cially adept in this trick. It is amusingly 
recalled that the star learned of Mutt's 
ability along this line early in the filming 
of the production and fiendishly would 
cue the dog to yawn in front of her lead- 
ing man right in the midst of an emo- 
tional scene. Yawns being the contagious 
quantity that they invariably are, the 
actor would ruin the scene by submitting 
to the urge. 


Do you remember William Powell's 
Wire-hair Terrier in The Thin Man? That 
was Skippy, as shameless a young gentle- 
man as ever poked his nose into anybody's 
business, but in the picture he was called 
upon time and again to register the very 
reverse. His hang-dog expression was 
one of the most humorous touches in the 
entire film. 

Now, how could he be ordered to look 
this way? Easy. And you can teach your 
dog to assume the same shamed appear- 
ance, just as Mr. East trained Skippy. 

"Calling your dog to you, stop him a 
few feet away and order him to 'Put your 
head down.' A little tap over his nose is 
sufficient to convey your meaning. Of 
course, the tap will be eliminated as soon 
as he learns to lower his head when told 
to do so. 

"After he knows this lesson thoroughly, 
you can combine 'Shame!' with 'Put your 
head down!' You can then say, 'Put your 
head down! — Shame!' and gradually re- 
duce the order merely to 'Shame!' " 

It's truly amazing how pathetic your 
dog will look as he maintains this pose, 
and, of course, his feelings won't be hurt 
because the word Shame will simply in- 
dicate putting down his head. But be sure 
you never say it as an honest criticism or 
he might forever have a guilty conscience. 

Teaching Him To Scratch 

Would you like to be able to order your 
dog to chase a flea when no flea is present? 
In other words, 
scratch himself 
J# upon your com- 

mand? Here's how 
you do it. 

"Put a snap- 
style clothes-pin 
on your dog just 
behind the shoul- 
der. It isn't neces- 
A well-behaved dog sary to clip it onto 

won't scratch unless the flesh so that 

he's told to, and will the dog will be un- 
quickly learn what comfortable, 

you are talking Catch only a few 
about. It pays to hairs together so 
talk his language! they'll pull a little. 
"Have your dog 
on a three-foot leash. Let him wander 
around, or sit, within the radius of the 
length of your leash. Do not let him feel 
that you're trying to get his attention for 
any particular reason. When he scratches 
at the clothes-pin, feed, pet and encourage 
him as you say, "That's it! — Scratch!' 

"Repeat with the clothes-pin for the 
next few days; then tell him, 'Scratch!' 
without the aid of the clothes-pin. Even- 
tually, he will scratch at the mere utter- 
ance of the word. But you mustn't try to 
rush him." 

In The Return oj Peter Grimra, with 
Lionel Barrymore, a beautiful Collie 
enacted one of the pivotal roles. If you 
caught the picture, the memory of Laddie 
undoubtedly still lingers with you. 

On two different occasions Laddie was 
required to limp, holding one foot in the 
air. In fact. Laddie, though only a young- 
ster, played an old dog — a character part, 
no less! — and acted as would any dog of 
venerable years. Instead of working with 
his customary zip, he walked and moved 
slowly, got up and stretched lazily and 
gave every appearance of an older canine. 
His performance was a splendid illustra- 
tion of how intelligent training prepares 

a dog to take over any role. But to 
explain the technique involved to teach 
a dog to walk on three legs, simulat- 
ing lameness. . . . You will probably 
want your dog to learn this act, because 
it's an effective showing-off lesson for the 
home-dog trainer to exhibit to his friends. 

"Tie one end of the training leash 
around the dog's front leg, just above the 
paw. Tie the other end of the leash to the 
dog's collar. Work close to him. Back 
slowly as you coax him to 'Come on! — 
Walk on three legs!' 

"Pull him along very slowly with the 
leash which is attached to the collar. Keep 
his foot off the ground with the other end 
of the leash as he walks hesitating toward 

"For the first week, the lesson should not 
be given without the aid of the cord. 
After that, you should try it without the 
cord by saying, 'Walk on three legs!' and 
tapping his foot when he tries to use it. 
You can add, 'Keep it up!' and Ah! Ah!' 
if he tries to place it on the ground. 

He Will Gradually Learn 

"If it is still difficult for him to walk on 
three legs, use the leash a little longer. 
Reward him if he takes only a step or two 
on three legs without the aid of the cord. 

When he learns to walk on three legs, 
you can send him to a distant spot and 
tell him to Hold it! — Walk on three legs! 
— Come on! — Walk on three legs!' If he 
tries to put his foot on the ground, antici- 
pate him with 'Ah! Ah! — Keep it up!' " 

Closely allied to this trick is a dog 
raising his paw and holding it in his 
mouth. And your dog can always win a 
laugh if he knows how to do this. 

"Place one of his paws in his mouth and 
say, 'Hold your paw!' If the position is 
entirely easy for him — some dogs aren't 
built for this feat and if the position is un- 
comfortable or awkward let the lesson be 
abandoned immediately — teach him then 
to pick up his paw from a standing posi- 
tion by saying, 'Pick up your paw!' and 
showing him what you mean. Combine 
the two movements and add, 'Hold it!' 
after he has the paw in his mouth." 

Of course, in all probability your dog 
will never be called upon to do more than 
perform for you and your friends . . . but 
what may be taught a canine actor has 
never been more strikingly presented than 
in the portrayal of Lightning in the title 
role of White Fang. 

Lightning had to approach the prostrate 
form of Michael Whalen as he lay upon 
the snow. Cautiously, he advanced, stiff 
legged, and sniffed gingerly, hastily re- 
treated a dozen paces, halted and slowly 
returned to the actor. Bending over him, 
he licked his face, breathed into the un- 
conscious man's mouth to keep kindled 
the spark of life and finally lay down by 
his side, as though to protect him from the 
arctic cold. What was so wonderful about 
this feat was the fact that the action was 
continuous and the dog acted solely upon 
the signalled directions of his trainer . . . 
yet he followed through without a hitch 
and required only a few rehearsals. 

If you would have your dog well- 
trained, train your dog the Hollywood 
way. Forget trick-routine and concen- 
trate upon your pet obeying your cues in- 
stantly and completely, regardless of order 
or sequence. Then you'll have a dog that 
youll be more than ever proud of and that 
might go on the screen.

First REACTION— the desire to make 
our classmates sit up and take notice. 
What fun it is to walk into the class- 
room and find all eyes turned our way! 
How to achieve this type reaction you 
ask? It is very simple. Reaction is, as 
the dictionary puts it, an action induced 
by vital resistance to some other action. 
Therefore, if fashion decrees puffed 
sleeves, try wearing sleeves of a more 
simple nature or if a dress is all black use 
a vivid touch of color as trimming or 
accessory. Reaction then may be ex- 
plained as something unexpected and out 
of the ordinary — a surprise. 

FEMININITY— we all know. Particu- 
larly in a school where students of both 
sexes work and play together the femi- 
nine quality is called for. Why dress in 

Studying in the library is just a part of the daily 
routine. Polly is proud of her navy blue vel- 
veteen two piece dress. Judith wears wine 
crepe with applique of beige and blue. Louise 
Mulligan dresses. The girls wear smart Laird- 
Schober kidskin shoes 

mannish attire to emulate the male spe- 
cies, when this year above all others offers 
girls a chance to display their feminine 
charms? Fashion has reverted to the 
puffed sleeve, tight waisted, full skirted 
era of our grandmothers affording us the 
same weapons of quaintness and femi- 
ninity of dress as when grandma flitted 
through the rosj' hue of school, parties 
and puppy love. 

QUALITY— last but not least. This 
word stands for excellence of character 
and individuality, two most important 
attributes and ones that will take you far 
in work, play or fashion. Quality in dress 
is essential. If you can only have a few 
gowns pay more and buy good ones. An 
expensive frock will last longer, hold up 
under the strain of wearing and do more 
for you from a fashion angle. 

For th» classroom Polly chooses a green wool 

with contrasting trim while Judith dresses in 

grey with heart shaped buttons. Reproductions

THE secrecy surrounding the mak- 
ing of "Cam ille" with Greta Garbo 
and Bob Taylor is no more nor 
less than usual. That means the curtain 
of privacy is complete, with no outsiders 
allowed on the sets without a personal 
okay from M-G-M's Number One man, 
Louis B. Mayer. 

This privacy has served to revive the 
annual rumors that Garbo is in love 
with her leading man. And not much 
can be said about such stories, for no 
one of the journalistic world is able to 
invade the sacred circle and see. I 
think she still prefers George Brent — 
but it's a guess. 

Over at a rival studio the other day 
I picked up a clever anecdote which, 

Bob Taylor and Greta Sarbo stroll before the 

camera. Is it love with them, or does she still 

prefer George Brent? 

regardless of its veracity, serves to 
prove how adequately M-G-M guards 
the portals to Garbo's private world. 
Bob Taylor had been missing for days 
(so the story goes) and Mr. Mayer him- 
self was getting thoroughly upset over 
his absence. A search for the popular 
young actor was about to be organized 
when the following telegram was laid 
on the tycoon's desk: 




Venturing out to Grand Central Air 
Terminal a few days ago to wish bon 
voyage to HOLLYWOOD'S publisher, 
W. H. Fawcett, I witnessed an incident 
which appeals strongly to my sense of 

Mr. Fawcett and his wife were talking 
to Wallace Beery, a fellow passenger 
going east aboard a giant American 
Airlines plane. As the three stood near 
the open door of the plane, I noticed a 
small film company shooting a "quickie" 
a few feet away. The picture had no 
particular stars, and is of no particular 
significance except that the director 
walked over to us and said, 

"Would you please step back out of 
the line of the camera? We want to 
keep the background clear." 

Beery grinned good naturedly and 
moved back. The film executive didn't 
know he had eliminated one of Holly- 
wood's biggest stars from the scene! 

Every time I see a double feature at 
a theatre I have a feeling of being 
"gypped." Not so much of money, as 
of time. To see one good film I usually 
have to sit through a bad one, unless I 
time my arrival carefully. 

The producers don't like dual bills, 
nor do the exhibitors. But they insist 
that competition has forced them into 
showing two films for the price of one. 
It is economically infeasible to exhibit 
two super-films on one program, so we 
must take what they offer, or beg them 
to do away with one of the pictures. 

Studios are trying to solve the prob- 
lem by making better — and much longer 
— features. For the past several months 
you have seen a growing tendency to 
let a picture run 100 minutes instead of 

70 if it's worth the extra footage. This 
policy will continue until the effect on 
double bills is learned. Few of us want 
to see 200 minutes of pictures at one 

The studios — unintentionally, of course 
— are doing another thing to discour- 
age dual showings. They are making a 
class of competitive pictures that are 
so bad people razz them openly. The 
fad to hoot the poor products has 
grown by leaps and bounds. Some 
shows are actually patronized for the 
sole purpose of ridiculing the current 

Sooner or later the double show idea 
will have to be abandoned. I hope it 
will suffer an earlv demise. 

Wallace Beery with Publisher W. H. Fawcett 

and Mrs. Fawcett ... a film director pushed 

the famous star aside . . . 

Out watching Universal's "Top of the 
Town" in production a fortnight ago, I 
saw more bad "breaks" on that one set 
than I have come across in many a moon. 
Scene after scene was spoiled. 

Two Chinese swordsmen were battling 
furiously when one of their swords broke 
in two. The scene was re-shot. A short 
time later Hugh Herbert tried to eat a 
fried egg in front of the camera, dis- 
covered in the middle of the scene that 
the egg was stuck to the plate. Another 
"take" was required. 

Other small disasters: doors wouldn't 
open, self-starters wouldn't start. But 
for all their trouble, Universal officials 
have reason to believe that "Top of the 
Town" will be one of their best films of 
the year.

yet she overlooks tender, ailing gums 

How often such neglect leads 
to real dental tragedies... 
help keep your gums healthy 
with Ipana and Massage. 

She'll sit by the hour for the latest 
finger wave, spend dollar after dol- 
lar on beauty aids, and fret and worry 
over the first sign of a skin blemish. 
But her friends and even strangers sel- 
dom notice these things. They only see 
her smile — a disappointing smile — a 
smile that is dull, dingy and unsightly— 
a smile that shocks instead of thrills! 

Yet her smile still could be attractive 
—with teeth sparkling, white and bril- 
liant. But not until she does something 
about her tender, ailing gums— not un- 
til she knows the meaning of that warn- 
ing tinge of "pink" on her tooth brush. 

Heed that Tinge of "Pink" 

When you see that tinge of "pink" on 
your tooth brush— go to your dentist. 
You may not be in for serious trouble— 
but let him decide. More than likely, 
however, he will lay the blame to our 
modern menus— to the soft foods that 
rob our gums of necessary work. And 

usually he will suggest more work for 
those lazy, tender gums and the healthy 
stimulation of Ipana and massage. 

If he does, start with Ipana and mas- 
sage today. Use it faithfully. Massage a 
little Ipana onto your gums every time 
you brush your teeth. Gradually you'll 
notice a new life and firmness as circu- 
lation quickens in the gums. 

Then with whiter teeth, healthier 
gums, how appealing your smile will 
be ; how brilliant, sparkling. Start with 
Ipana Tooth Paste and massage today, 
and help make your smile the lovely, 
attractive thing it ou»ht to be. 

a good tooth paste, 
like a good dentist, 
is never a luxury.

Dear Editor: 

The most interesting thing about Hollywood, to 
me, is the lives of the stars — the real life of those 
who portray the lasting sweetness of love and ro- 
mance, bringing the blessedness of hearts attuned to 
love and happiness to us; yet in their own life is so 
much of unhappincss, undeserved. It must be 
poignantly bitter, indeed, to play such roles, and 
in the ending find only shattered romance in their 
own hearts. 

So many of them do that — they reach the heights 
— then plunge down to the bottom. I've thought 

of Mary and Doug — the Bannisters Gables — Mary 

Astor — Bushman — and hundreds of others. Cer- 
tainly they have suffered the most poignant bitter- 
ness a human knows, yet they have brought happi- 
ness and joy to us so often! 

If they are indiscreet — if they get talked about — 

if they lose out like humans often do let's not be 

quitters on them! To me they are still the same. 
We have no right to say what they shall do in their 
private life. If they fail — try to come back — -let's 
give them a hand, a big one! If they err, let's still 
love them — and be right in there cheering when they 
do try to make the climb again! 

And Gene don't dodge love oc put it off! If 

the right one comes along — why, go to town! And 

— when you do here's hoping you a million years 

of happiness! 

What do you say, fellows and girls? Can't we 
be big enough to stick to them when they're fading? 

— and if some day Clark, Joan, Gene or Jean or 

any of them — are pictured in their attempt to Come 
Back — well, aren't we still going to mob that box

Hollywood Productions 

Corralin£ the World Indoors! 

Henry Fonda and Sylvia Sidney at their honeymoon supper in You Only Live Once, would seem 
to be giving deep consideration to what the future holds for their romantic associations 

That Amazing Hollywood custom of 
bringing the mountain to Mahomet 
seems to be gaining in popularity. 
More and more the studios create natural 
settings within the huge buildings called 
sound stages instead of traveling to loca- 
tion sites far and near. 

A notable recent example of this prac- 
tice, which enables producers to formulate 
a definite schedule and stick to it through 
their ability to control sound, lighting and 
weather in out-of-door sequences filmed 
indoors, was You Only Live Once, a Walter 
Wanger production starring Sylvia Sidney 
and Henry Fonda. 

Although probably 50 per cent of the 
action takes place out of doors, the unit 
left the United Artists studio for only a 
few short scenes, and spent most of its 
seven weeks' actual camera work on 
sound stages. Forests, mountains, deserts 
came into being through the miracle of 
Alexander Toluboff's modern set con- 
struction. Rain, wind, fog. sunshine were 
on tap at a moment's notice. Nature's 
whims, the old bugaboo of location scenes, 
could be laughed at. 

Particular importance attaches to You 
Only hive Once, in the Hollywood scheme 
of things, not only because it is conceived 
on a grand scale, but because it is Walter 
Wanger's first production under his new 
long-term releasing arrangement with 
United Artists. As the curtain-raiser on 
a series of big pictures for the season's 
program, the creator of Trail of the Lone- 
some Pine, Private Worlds, The Moon's 
Our Home and other hits, in the language 
of Hollywood, "shot the works" in making 
You Only Live Once. 

An original story by Gene Towne and 
Graham Baker, the direction was intrusted 
to Fritz Lang, whose Fury introduced him 
to Hollywood. A Viennese, and probably 
the most colorful megaphonist to arrive 
from Europe in the last fifteen years, he 

won world fame with M, Metropolis and 
other continental hits before transferring 
his talents to America. 

Miss Sidney, who co-starred in Fury 
and who more than any other Hollywood 
personality appreciated the brilliant, driv- 
ing force of Lang, tipped off Fonda, Barton 
MacLane, William Gargan, Jean Dixon 
and other principals at the start of the 
picture, when the director called them all 
together, read the script and acted out 
each part himself, that they "hadn't seen 
anything yet." 

They hadn't. Miss Sidney wasn't sur- 
prised when Lang persuaded her to run 
up and down a flight of stairs several times 
so she would be naturally out of breath

romantic paradise on the roof of the world. So I don't have to tell you what a stupendous job 
it was to reproduce this fabulous Oriental "hideout" on the screen, and to portray the amazing 
romance that takes place within its walls. But Columbia, Capra and Colman have done it — 
done it so superbly that for my money "Lost Horizon" is going to be one of those talked- 
about pictures that everybody just has to see. The star role is the best thing I've seen Ronald 
Colman do, and the supporting efforts of Edward Everett Horton, Margo, H. B Warner, 
Jane Wyatt and thousands of others, plus Robert Riskin's exciting adaptation, all go to make 
"Lost Horizon" a big picture in every sense of the word. I'm telling you — don't miss it!

Hollyivood Spotlights 

Eleanore Whitney: 
She's On Her Toes 


Richard Murray 

IN The Best Hollywood tradition, 
Eleanore Whitney's story should be 
that of the poor but beautiful young 
girl who, overnight, soared from rags to 
riches, from obscurity to adulation. Then 
the film colony could properly label her 
as Cinderella, 1937 edition, and promptly 
dismiss her from its mind. The cinema 
citadel can never rest easily, you know, 
until each newcomer has been properly 
tagged and classified and filed away for 
future reference. But Miss Whitney is 
not the one to be dismissed lightly, if at 
all. She definitely refuses to fit into a 
groove. In fact, she is in a very fair way 
of becoming a ninety-seven pound menace 
to Hollywood's peace of mind. 

She is both young enough and pretty 
enough to carry on the time hallowed 
Cinderella motif. But behind her are too 
many years of struggle, too many aching 
hours of rehearsal, for her to qualify as a 
sister in the Order of the Glass Slipper. 
Eleanore won't even compromise to the 
extent of becoming a "glamour girl." And 
— here, my friends, is heresy! — not once 
has she even admitted to those familiar 
yearnings to get away from it all! To 
Hollywood, Eleanore is its youngest 
enigma. And by far its cutest one. 

You'll pardon me while I take a sweep- 
ing bow. To me, at least, the unpredict- 
able Whitney is no unfathomable mystery. 
You see, I happened to know her before 
she came to the celluloid coast. And I can 

Heralded as "ninety-seven pounds of menace to Hollywood's peace of mind," Eleanore Whitney 
is forging ahead in a fashion that even those in the know characterize as unpredictable 

Eleanore Whitney and Johnny Downs may be 
drinking a toast to romance; then again it 
may be just an attempt to keep cool during 
a warm California day. The story tells all! 


tell you sincerely that this young lady, 
whom critics have described as Eleanor 
Powell's only competition, is strictly the 
McCoy! The circumstances of our meeting 
may bear repeating. 

I'd just arrived in Chicago for a business 
conference with Rudy Vallee who was 
playing a theatre engagement there. It 
was as hot as only Chicago can be hot in 
mid-August. Even in Rudy's air-condi- 
tioned dressing room, the atmosphere was 
stifling. I tried to catch a nap as Rudy 
shaved before the dressing room mirror. 
Suddenly there was a staccato burst of 
tapping from across the hall. It sounded 
like some dancer warming up with a time- 
step, I decided gloomily. The tapping per- 
sisted. After a full ten minutes, such 
energy was, to say the least, definitely 
annoying. I got up and opened the door 
and looked out. I looked again, then 
closed the door softly. "You've been 
holding out on me," I said. "Since when 
have you carried a tap dancer in the 

Vallee glanced at me in the mirror. 
"Her? That's Eleanore Whitney. She's 
pretty good." He wiped the lather from 
his face and started to slide into a shirt. 
I looked at him. Rudy Vallee was never 
a soft touch for tap dancers as a part of 

his stage unit. He didn't have to tell me 
that she must be better than "pretty 

I caught her act at the next performance. 
She did two routines and took three cur- 
tain calls. She looked very cute as she 
twirled and tapped her way across the 
stage. In her tiny, white skirt and sweater 
she looked about fourteen. After the show 
Rudy introduced me to Eleanore and her 
mother. I took another good look at her 
and said, "You know, you really ought to 
be in pictures! And no sales talk!" 

She grinned as she started to remove her 
make-up. "Thanks," she said blithely. 
"I'm going to be — I hope. I'm on my way 
to the coast now for a Paramount picture." 
And she was. So when the Whitneys 
arrived in Hollywood, I was their self- 
appointed guide. 

I took Eleanore to her first dance here, 
her first picture, the first stage show. I 
saw the rushes of her first picture with 
her. Helped them find an apartment. 
Eleanore wasn't interested in going out a 
great deal nor in meeting "the right 
people." Not that she didn't have plenty 
of chances. All she wanted to do was con- 
centrate on her screen debut. I lived only 
a few blocks away and almost every night

A coiffure with a purpose — 
worn by Joan Perry in 
Columbia's Counterfeit Lady, 
and designed by Helen Hunt, 
who is a member of the Mo- 
tion Picture Hairstylists Guild 

Every Curl Has a meaning all its own 
when arranged by Helen Hunt, the 
alert young woman in charge of 
Columbia's hairdressing department. Into 
her slim hands falls the responsibility of 
creating hairdresses — dozens of them — for 
such famous stars as Grace Moore, Dolores 
Del Rio and Jean Arthur. 

And these hairdresses must express not 
only the mode of the moment but must 
meet every facial requirement of the in- 
dividual. Long faces are made round, 
plump cheeks made slender, high fore- 
heads shortened — all without sacrificing an 
iota of chic. 

The attractive new coiffure which Helen 
designed for Joan Perry, appearing in 
Counterfeit Lady, is an excellent example 
of the manner in which she adroitly adapts 
the current style to personal needs. Chat- 

ting with Helen in her immaculate domain 
of glistening basins and electric dryers, we 
discussed the tricks of her trade. 

"Miss Perry has a slim face with narrow, 
rounded brow," Helen said, "so no matter 
what type of hairdress is designed for her 
we try to give additional width at the 
temples with loose waves and curls. 

"For this coif, Miss Perry's hair is cut 
shoulder length across the back and in 
tiers at the sides of her face. When dressed, 
the tiers form a circlet of curls around the 
head which gives the necessary width to 
the face. The long bob also fills in the 
space from shoulder to jawline and is most 
flattering to a girl of Miss Perry's slender 

"The curls at the sides and top of the 
head," Helen explained, "are made on

When Randolph Churchill, son of 
Winston Churchill, British diplomat, 
came to Hollywood recently, he said he 
knew that Charles Chaplin and Paulette 
Goddard were married. Chaplin and the 
girl friend did a terrific burn up and 
issued a flock of denials. The fact is, 
however, that all of Hollywood agrees 
with Churchill and any announcement 
that the pair is married would now be 
like a new issue of an old book.

Now it can be told 

The Truth About Rudy And Fay ! 

Fay Webb Vallee lay dying in a Santa 
Monica hospital. Three thousand miles 
away, one of the country's greatest 
radio programs was in rehearsal. Its con- 
ductor, a brisk, efficient young dynamo, 
was making his final time check when re- 
porters entered the studio. Then, for the 
first time, Rudy Vallee was told of the real 
condition of his estranged wife. He 
dropped his baton and walked away from 
the stand, his face pale and shaken. 

A newshawk halted him at the door. 
Did Rudy have anything he wanted to 
say? Rudy looked past him, nodded slowly. 
"I've always loved her," he said simply. 
"I always will." 

Behind those simple words rests a story 
that is without parallel. A story that fic- 
tion editors would say was impossible; a 
story that ended unhappily — something no 
good story should do. I happen to know 
the circumstances; know that once again, 
life has proven itself more fantastic, more 
tragic, than the wildest fiction. You see, 
Rudy Vallee happens to be my best friend. 

Fay Webb Vallee, whose love of excitement, 
lights and gaiety found no solace in the type 
of life "the Vagabond Lover" had to lead 

The next evening Rudy was told of Fay's 
death. At that moment he was at the 
French Casino, New York's gayest night 
club, preparing to go on with the stage 
show. Only a few days before he had con- 
tracted to appear there. It was because 
of that obligation that Rudy was not al- 
ready en route to California when Fay 
passed into the land from which there 
can be no return. Newspapers told you 
how he turned away and, sobbing, thrust 
his way past the autograph seekers. Alone 
he went to his bachelor apartment over- 
looking the East River. 

What he thought as he sat there alone 
in those long hours before the dawn is 
something that will never be known. 
Rudy's New England heritage prevents his 
displaying his deepest emotions even to 
his most intimate friends. You'll know 
him a long, long time before you under- 
stand the true depths of his nature. Only 
some one who has been close to him could 
even faintly realize what he must have 
felt that night. 

Rudy Vallee's heart is heavy since the curtain 
was drawn on the romance that friends 
say should never have brought matrimony 

That death should take the girl who had 
been his wife was hardly believable. Fay 
Webb had a capacity for love of life that 
is given to few women. That vital charm 
was much of the secret of the personality 
that attracted Rudy to her. It had been 
seven years since they first met. He was 
in the first flush of his great success; a 
young man still in his twenties, eager, the 
world before him. He had come to Holly- 
wood to make his first picture. 

Mutual friends had introduced him to 
Fay. Her exotic beauty stirred him at 
once. In a few weeks he was completely, 
irrevocably in love. It was Fay who saw 
him off at the train when he returned to 
the East. She cried then and said she was 
afraid that Rudy would forget her. For- 
get her for the lovely and beautiful young 
women who had already been attracted by 
his success and dominant personality. 
Practically no one in the cinema citadel 
thought they would marry. But Rudy 
didn't forget; he never does. 

A few months later Fay followed him 
East and they quietly slipped away to a 
sleepy little New Jersey town and were 
married. Immediately there was a deluge 
of publicity. The nation's vagabond lover 
had finally found his "dream girl." That 
phrase was something that Rudy naturally 
disliked; disliked it quite as intensely as 
being labeled "the vagabond lover." They 
were never alone. Once he said to me: 
"We might have been happy — if I hadn't 
been Rudy Vallee." 

By that he meant only that if he and 
Fay had been permitted to lead the nor- 
mal life of any newlyweds, that final, 
heartbreaking parting would have been 
avoided. Both he and Fay were madly in 
love; it was the final touch to his career. 
Rudy is essentially a lonely personality; 


Vallee's Close Friend 

his work gives him little time for friends 
or pleasure. Now happiness was com- 
plete. He had someone to share the fruits 
of his success. He said then, "A man 
doesn't seek fame nor money nor success 
for himself. That would be selfish. You 
want someone to give it to; someone to be 
proud and happy over your good fortune." 

But Rudy Vallee was news! And any- 
thing his young wife said, or did, or wore, 
was news too. There was no chance for 
the privacies that are so cherished by 
young lovers. It was like a never-ending 
dress parade. Eventually Fay became ill 
and went to the coast to recuperate. Im- 
mediately there were rumors of divorce; 
rumors that crept into print. That would 
have been a great story, you see — "Vaga- 
bond Lover Loses Dream Girl!" His own 
success was proving one of the major 
handicaps to Fay's and Rudy's marriage. 

Even Fay's return to New York and 
their lovely apartment in Central Park 
West, could not halt those flying tongues. 
Again she suffered a relapse and was 

After their first separation Rudy and Fay were 
reunited briefly. They are shown here as she 
came to him at a Cleveland theatre in 1932 

forced to return to Santa Monica. That 
too was promptly recorded in the press. 
Rudy's absence from her bedside was 
commented upon, the inference left to the 

No man that I have ever known — bar 
none— works half as hard as Rudy Vallee. 
I know, too. As his western representa- 
tive, I've lived with him while he made 
two pictures. Seventeen-hour work days 
are the rule rather than the exception. 
Not fifteen minutes of his day does he 
have that may go unaccounted for. His 
work, his career, the very living of half a 
hundred people necessitated his being in 
New York. Fay understood that. Didn't 
she return to her husband as soon as she 

A word about Fay's recurrent illness. 
Even as a high school girl she had been 
subject to nervous ailments. She had 
much of the same fatal, exotic charm, as 
Barbara La Marr; was victim to the same 
neurotic ills. She was young, loved life.

Hollywood Spotlights 

Myrna Loy's Hand Carved Career! 

Myrna Loy is a sculptress. She is also 
a painter. And she can play the 
piano. As a dancer she has few 
equals and still fewer superiors in all 
Hollywood. Which gives you a few ideas 
of her talents outside the field of acting, 
where any comment would be super- 

But Myrna's greatest piece of sculptur- 
ing has not been in the field of marble or 
plaster. It has been in the shaping of her 
own life and career to the point where she 
stands out as the envy of other women 
the world over. The Loy she has moulded 
in the flesh will remain a monument to 
the determination of a little girl, from the 
cattle plains of Montana, who early in life 
promised herself to make good in Holly- 
wood and who fulfilled that promise to 
the very letter. 

When you see her in After the Thin Man 
or in Parnell, her two latest films for 
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, you will not be 
viewing a child of destiny. You will be 
seeing a great actress created through her 
own efforts and spirit. 

Let's look back over the years and see 
how all this has happened. It is interest- 
ing and not a little bit inspiring. Perhaps 
there is a formula which will help others 
mould their own careers and then fight 
through the maze of entanglements which 
seem to be a necessary part in any battle 
for success. 

The record shows that a Myrna Williams 
came into the world at Helena, Montana, 
about 31 years ago. "Myrna Williams?" 
you ask. Yes, Myrna Williams. Her family 
was a typical American one, with the tang 
of Scotland's heather fields in its ancestry. 
Down the street, a few doors, lived another 
family, named Cooper. A son, Gary, was 

Here is Myrna Loy (right) with her husband, 
Arthur Hornblow, Jr., end Sharon Lynne as 
seen by cameraman at a Hollywood preview 

Charming Myrna Loy as she appears today 
after a decade of transition from half-caste to 
the ultimate of modern sophistication. Out 
of the chrysalis of past effort she emerges 
the envy of many women the world over 

destined to achieve great fame in the 
cinema, but in those days he was just a 
little shaver playing tag with the other 
kids in the same block. 

The fact that Gary Cooper lived in the 
same block has absolutely nothing to do 
with this story. It is merely an interesting 
commentary. It is doubtful if either Gary 
or Myrna can remember the other and in 
Hollywood they have had nothing more 
than a nodding friendship. All of which 
helps to prove that the world is a strange 
place, after all. 

Modeling Came First 

When the mother was widowed, she 
decided that she would go to California 
with her two children, Myrna and David. 
That was how Myrna Williams happened 
to become a model. All by accident, but 
undoubtedly it had much to do with hei

Feature for February 

Daring the Gods 

Floods, Fires, Strikes, lynchings, war — 
all news! And at every turn of the 
camera's crank a life is risked to bring 
you that news in pictures. Newsreel men 
brave untold hazards, day in and day out, 
in order to put Mr. and Mrs. Public on the 
scenes of action. 

Newsreel cameramen have always been 
colorful, romantic figures and everyone 
knows that their lives are full of thrills, 
but not everyone realizes the actual dan- 
gers these "Gods of Death" encounter. 
When we sit back in our comfortable seats 
in heat-regulated, air-conditioned thea- 
tres and thrill to the latest news of the 
world as it unfolds before our very eyes, 
little do we realize the terrific dangers that 
the newsreel men frequently face while 
obtaining those "shots." What is a little 
danger in comparison to all the grandeur, 
the pomp and ceremony, and the real 
drama that these men see, you say? Why, 
the very earth has no bounds for them. 

Marked By Anxiety 

Still, the cameramen will tell you a 
different story. They will tell you that 
their lives contain much anxiety, uncer- 
tainty, and no end of tragedy. The men 
never know where their next assignment 
is going to be and, having sent one in, 
wonder if it will make the next issue and 
if editors will put their seal of approval 
on it as having screen value. Theirs is a 
game where one gets assignments, tough 
or pleasant, with only one thought — to get 
the picture. Tragedy often enters, and it is 
a newsreel cameraman's job to risk 
his life, if necessary, to cover his assign- 

Can you recall how a few months ago 
a colored man in Owensboro. Ky., accused 
and convicted of attacking and murdering 
a white woman, was hanged. The public 
hanging, a social event such as had never 
been experienced in that vicinity before, 
brought out a mob of twenty thousand 
persons who swarmed around and over the 
gallows and, in spite of the police, stripped 
the clothing from the prisoner while his 
body was still suspended through the 
trap? A score of cameramen had arrived 
early and had set up their equipment for 
shooting. Many were grinding away at 

their cameras when suddenly a violent 
mob leader screamed out against the 
newsreelers. Then like an avenging jury 
the mob turned on them, bellowing blas- 
phemy and grasping at the men's clothing 
and cameras. Had not a large number of 
policemen been on the scene to protect 
the cameramen stark tragedy might have 
been enacted. As it was the men were 
lucky to escape with only torn clothing, 
minor injuries and smashed equipment. 

Two Lose Lives 

Ever see pictures of the annual caribou 
migration way up in the Yukon country? 
Recently such pictures cost the lives of 
two young cameramen. Such was the 
result of a horde of maddened bulls as 
they came rushing onto the men. It was 
a miracle that, of the quintet of newsreel 
men on hand, three escaped with their 
cameras and enough film to bring the news 
flash to every theatregoer in the land. 

A short time ago the picture snatchers 
got a real thrill at Catalina Island, off the 
Southern California coast, as a construc- 
tion crew was blasting a ledge in the 
mountain side high above the Pacific in 
order to run the highway along the ocean 
instead of winding for a distance around 
a precipice. Their cameras were set to 
catch the movement and dislodgement of 
the mountain. About three hundred feet 
out in the water adjacent to the site of 
the blast a large rock lifted itself fifteen 
feet out of the water. It was an ideal 
set-up to shoot from; so a couple of 
cameramen selected it while another 

When racing cars crash everyone seeks cover 
except the newsreel man. Here are three his 
camera caught in an Ascot speedway spill 


Carrying the camera into battle line! Mervyn 
Freeman, Universal Newsreel cameraman, here 
shown with forces of the Japanese in China 

journeyed up the coast to get a side angle. 
A fourth man was anchored in a skiff in 
the ocean directly in front of the blast. 
When the dynamite was touched off after 
a warning, the cameras began to click. 
The earth shook, and the mountain side 
lifted and slid into the ocean. Tons upon 
tons of rock went down, causing huge 
waves. The four cameramen were caught 
in a tidal wave and it looked like they 
had shot their last picture as they 
struggled frantically in the heaving 
waters. By a miracle, however, they all 
came through and the cameras, too, were 
salvaged. The exposed film in the per- 
fectly airtight and light-proof magazines, 
which proved to be water-tight also, was 
developed, and the audiences that wit-

cameramen a modicum of protection during 
the heat of the longshoremen's strike in San 
Francisco after national guardsmen take a hand 

nessed the picture marveled at the shots 
with no knowledge of the attendant near- 
tragic circumstances. 

Mervyn Freeman, ace -cameraman for 
Universal News, tells how he escaped 
death at the battle of Chapei-Chenju 
during the Sino-Japanese War of 1932. 
"In order to obtain the necessary pictures 
for Universal," he said, "I attached myself 
to the 36th Infantry, Japanese Imperial 
Army, at Shanghai Then I employed M. 
Tomano, a Japanese interpreter, and 
headed for the firing line at North Kiang- 
wan, China. At Chapei-Chenju we ran 
into some real war. Lucky for me that I 
had aligned myself with the Japanese for 
at this point luck was theirs. I armed 
myself with a helmet, pistol, canteen, and, 
with my camera strapped across my back, 
went to battle with them. The Japanese 
opened , the attack from the air and after 
several hours of heavy bombardment put 
the Chinese to rout. Then they charged 
on the Chinese lines. Here the fun began 
for me. What a story and what a scoop! 
If only I could get it! 

"But, believe you me, it was plenty 
ticklish out there running wild with a 
bulky camera in that No Man's Land, 
where life meant less than nothing. Nor 
did I have the protection of our dear old 
Stars and Stripes! I was fortunate to have 
the protection of the Japanese flag. And 


of Death!

times it would have been smashed to 
pieces. That made it government property, 
and hence sacred to the soldiers. Of 
course, I remained somewhat in the back- 
ground, but when we were nearing the 
trenches the Chinese cut loose with every- 
thing they had. Five soldiers dropped 
dead right in my path. But it wasn't long 
until I was over the top and inside a 
Chinese trench. Once inside I crawled up 
as high as I dared and ground away at 
my camera with Chinese and Japanese 
bullets whistling over me. 

Camel Goes Berserk 

"But the narrowest escape I ever had 
was right in Los Angeles County at Ken 
Maynard's ranch, last August, when a 
camel which was attached to a plow took 
a violent exception to being portrayed in 
such an uncamel-like and undignified 
task. The camel, on seeing my camera, 
rushed at me with all the berserk violence 
of his species. The result was a twenty- 
two day rest — if you can call it a rest — 
for yours truly in a hospital. 

"Another occasion I'll not forget was 
back in 1934, in San Francisco, when I was 
covering the longshoreman's strike. This 
time I was working with the police under 
the protection of the national guardsmen. 
We were wearing bullet proof vests and 
gas masks and were routing strikers from 
behind box cars. The strikers began 
throwing bricks at us. Then the fun was 


on — the strikers throwing clubs and stones, 
the police using tear gas bombs. We had 
a pretty wild time but I guess a lot of 
cameramen have gone through the same 
experience without the protection we had. 
Even those fellows that went with Byrd 
to the South Pole didn't live in any bed of 

During the recent trouble in Cuba. 
Joseph Gibson suffered four bullet wounds 
in his legs. Standing in the thick of the 
fighting down there in Havana, Joe's legs 
caught a row of machine bullets as he 
cranked his camera for Universal. That 
was tough luck for Joe, and tougher still 
in view of the fact that he had to lose a 
grand picture of the revolution, but such 
is the reward of a newsreeler! 

Certainly there is no deadly monotony 
in the life of a cameraman. One day he 
may be the honored guest of distinguished 
people, who courteously put at his service 
every facility for making his job easy, 
while the next day's job is done in spite 
of continuous threats and attempts to 
mob him, and smash his camera and, 
sometimes, ends with a police escort out 
of town and a clever smuggling out of his 
exposed film. 

Swing on High Perch 

Sound Technician Warren McGrath and 
Cameraman Jim Seeback tell of thrills 
(and what thrills) as they left good old 
Mother Earth in a little basket-like cage 
which was swiftly raised to a high level 
over the Golden Gate bridge in San Fran- 
cisco. From there they made their pre-

of skeleton framework known as a 
"creeper truss." Then, like expert steel 
workers, these men scaled the uppermost 
parts of the framework, taking their 
equipment with them. However, before 
climbing to the top mast, arrangements 
had been made to have them hoisted on a 
small platform which was attached to the 
top of the tower by a series of cables that 
carried them heavenward. Imagine the 
thrills they had as they looked down — far 
down — from that tiny skip high in the air. 
Imagine the cold feet, leaping hearts, and 
dry throats those fellows had when they 
heard faint cries from the tower, scream-

limply from their skip. Boy, oh boy, what 
a sight! But then that's the life of the 
newsreel and sound men. Every day with 
them brings thrills and spills with no 
certainty as to the morrow. 

Dye-Squirting Guns 

Captain Herford Tynes Cowling of the 
National Archives, Wasliington, D. C. 
tells an interesting story of his filming the 
Maharajah of Kashmir at a celebration. 
The Maharajah had invited only his best 
friends, and everyone was dressed in 
white. The guests spent the afternoon in 
horse-play, throwing vari-colored dyes on 
each other with squirt guns, but when the 
camera began to record their actions the 
Maharajah and a number of his guests 
decided to turn their squirt guns in the 
direction of the camera. Maybe that was 
fun but Captain Cowling wasn't so sure 
about it. 

For months newsreel cameramen found 
death close to them in bringing you close- 
ups of gripping encounters among the 
Loyalists and rebels in war-torn Spain. It 
never is a question of whether they will 
come through alive, but to get out and film 
whatever rival armies put on in the way 
of plain and fancy fighting. They see 
scenes that chill the blood and sear the 
soul, and bring them to you in picture 
news — if they get out alive. 

The same was true of the conflict in 
Ethiopia when II Duce and Haille Selassie 
pitted their respective armies in desperate 
conflict. The newsreel cameraman never 
knows when a bullet may find its resting 
place in his body while he cranks his 
camera to record martian struggles. 
Withal, they come through most times as 
if some charm rules their destinies. 

And, mind you, adventures like these 
are not unusual in the hectic lives of the 
cameramen. No question, they are the 
unsung heroes of movieland, and though 
their days may be filled with zip, dash and 
go, they are likewise filled with heart 
throbs and chaos. With them each day 
is a day of wonderment; wonderment as 
to where they will go next, wonderment 
as to what they may encounter and won- 
derment as to whether they will return to 
their loved ones. You may gamble that 
newsreel cameramen tackle every job with 
real enthusiasm — not because it's all in a 
day's work — but because, well, it's part 
of the make-up of these fellows to get the 
most out of the old box no matter what's 
in front of it. 

Hip, Hip. Hippopotamus! If getting a good 
closeup of a wild beast demands going aboard, 
that becomes part of a newsreel man's duty 


Keeping That Hollywood Figure! 

Stand erect, arms a* sides and feet together. At count or / raise arms 
from sides to shoulder level. At same time, raise right leg, toe pointed, 
as high as possible to the side. At count of 2 return to original position. 
At count of 3 raise arms to shoulder level and bring left leg to side as 
high as possible. At count of 4 bring legs back to original position 

Five "Ounces Of Prevention" exercises are illustrated here by 
Anne Shirley, RKO -Radio star. Eighteen -year-old Anne 
(who weighs all of 105 pounds) operates on the wise principle 
that staying slim is easier than reducing. 

Therefore she has adopted a short gymnastic routine, exercises 
designed with an eye to developing poise, erect posture, a supple, 
graceful body, as well as a slim one. 

But — if you find yourself sharing Ann's enthusiasm observe 
carefully the following "do's" and "don't's": 

1. This routine is a strenuous one and should be "worked 
into" gradually. Otherwise you will achieve a stiff body instead 
of a supple one. Never exercise for an extended period the first 
day — or even the first week. Begin with five minutes for the 
whole routine and work up to fifteen. 

2. Perform the exercises with precision. Make each move- 
ment clear cut. When it says "return to original position" do so — 
snappily. Don't slide limply from one position to the next. 

3. Exercise in a cool room. Unless it is winter and blowing a 
gale, open a window. Don't expose yourself and catch cold. 

4. Don't forget that strenuous exercise under improper condi- 
tions does more harm than good. 

Retaining svelte lines is a much sought goal by many of your 
favorite film actresses. Letting poundage pile up while enjoying 
weight-producing foods, or by inactivity, often demands very 
rigorous means to return to normalcy. Hence, moderate exercise, 
habitually taken becomes an easier means of keeping the weight 
at any desired figure than the strenuous regimen demanded when 
one must lose excess avoirdupois quickly to meet the require- 
ments of a role before an all-seeing camera. 

Kneel on left knee, right leg extended forward resting on heel, body 
erect. Raise arms from sides to shoulder level. At count of 1 turn 
body at waist, touching right hand to right toe. At count of 2 return

hand to right toe. At count of 4 return to original position. Repeat 
several times. Repeat exercise, kneeling on right knee, left leg extended 

Facing down, raise body from mat by both arms and legs, arms slightly 
forward, feet back. At count of 1 raise right leg from floor, up and 
back. Point toe and do not bend knee. At count of 2 return to

At count of 4 return to position 

Lie face down on mat, feet together. Place hands under chest and 
raise upper part of body from mat the extent of the arms. At count of 1

Cary Grant (above) welcomes Director Edward N. Buzzell on Interlude 
set to wish Robert Riskin luck on his first directorial assignment. Pat 
West, character actor, listens in. Below, Grace Moore welcomes her 
husband, Valentin Parera, who looks in to see how Grant makes love 

Grace Moore relaxes on the sidelines with her director, Robert Riskin, 
ace scenarist who is broadening his scope in the screen world. Below, 
Pat West's bald head looms large as Cary Grant and Edward N. Buzzell 
(right) smile at something said by someone West has put in eclipse 

Grace Moore's Voice wings a melody 
through the sound stage. 
"Even the heavens applaud you!" 

The "skies" — somewhere in the top of 
a Columbia sound stage — open to deluge 
Miss Moore as she sings a love song to 
Cary Grant and the birds in a secluded 
wooded nook. Thus Cary praises Miss 
Moore after exhibiting contempt for her 
in the early reels of Interlude. 

It was a brilliant, hot afternoon as we 
walked through the sound stage door and 
into dripping woods to see Robert Riskin 
filming one of the more interesting scenes 
of his first directorial assignment — Grace 
Moore's new vehicle — for which he also 
wrote the screen play. 

To those who are confident that all opera 
stars are temperamental, let it be said that 
Grace Moore proved in the rain sequence 
that she "can take it" without complaint, 
and be assured that when in the rain scene 
you see her rise quickly from a roadster 
seat and quaver "o-o-h, it's wet," there 

was no make believe about it. Tempera- 
ment is said to be the one thing with which 
Riskin has not had to deal in making his 
initial flight as a director, ably abetted by 
Henry Lachman. 

Miss Moore has been given excellent 
vocal material- that promises to thrill her 
fans. Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields 
have given her a grand array of modern 
musical numbers, while the more classical 
portions of the picture music came from 
the pens of Schubert and Puccini. 

Miss Moore is cast as an Australian 
opera star in America under a limited 
passport. She basks in the false atten- 
tions of a trio of sycophants. Her only 
honest emotion is her affection for the\ old 
maestro responsible for her success. His 
ambition to stage a magnificent song fes- 
tival with her as the star is periled by the 
fact that her passport is to expire. She 
goes to Mexico to re-enter under a quota, 
but this promises delay beyond the time 
for the festival. 

Marriage to an American would solve 
the problem, and Cary Grant, who has no 
use for false human qualities such as he 
sees embodied in the diva, finally, for a 
consideration, offers to take part in a 
marriage of convenience. 

Grant's resolve weakens, they meet 
again, he severely criticizes the type of 
persons who worship at her shrine and 
then takes her into the woods where she 
can sing to a real audience — the birds. 

Here it must be admitted Riskin found 
the birds much more temperamental than 
his diva-star. Lack of word from Grant 
on the night of the festival nearly wrecks 
the performance because the opera star 
has come to believe that one man's love 
eclipses that of an army of sycophants. 

Every effort has been made to insure 
this Grace Moore vehicle of surpassing 
any o f her previous screen offerings. Grant 
is a type of leading man new to Moore 
pictures. As a two-fisted, hard-drinking

She Takes The Rap For Thrills! 

William K. Gibbs 

Did You See Barbara Stanwyck hurtle 
over a cliff in Lost Lady? 
Did you see Ruth Chatterton throw 
herself in front of a truck in Journal of a 
Crime, or dodge falling walls in Frisco 

Did you see Sally Eilers make a daring 
parachute jump in Central Airport? 

Did you see Josephine Hutchinson take 
a terrific beating with a whip in Mountain 

You did? No, you — you saw Mary 
Wiggins, a Dixie girl who is Hollywood's 
most famous double. 

Mary Wiggins is just the type of girl 
you, and you, and you would look at and 
say: "you ought to be in pictures." She 
is, but she is unsung. All those big words 
that go with making big stars bigger right- 
fully belong to the little southern girl who 
has been defying death for ten years with- 
out a scratch — almost. 

She didn't start out to be a double for 
fair favorites of filmdom. One W. H. 
"Bill" Rice, who has given the carnival 
world many spectacular acts, found Mary 
in her home town of Tampa, Fla., in 1926. 
when she was a high school student, with 
a flair for diving. 

Dives Way to Top 

Her first work was diving off a 35-foot 
platform at a St. Louis exposition. 
Gradually she worked her way upward, 
adding 10 feet to her dives until she got to 
the top— about 70 feet. 

When there seemed no further heights 
to scale in diving, Mary Wiggins added 
thrills by setting herself afire at the top 
of a 70-foot ladder, and diving into a 
6-foot tank with flaming gasoline on its 

The only thing that bothers Mary in the 
fire dive is the itch. She wears long woolen 

No, this is not a comet, but a human torch! The flaming arc is made by Mary Wiggins, 
Hollywood's No. I "thrill girl," diving from a lofty ladder into a 6-foot-deep-tank, the 
surface of which is ablaze with burning gasoline like the garment she is wearing. It's a hit! 

Mere's Mary Wiggins, beautiful enough to 
be given movie camera closeups, but who is 
only seen in long shots doubling in danger 
for feminine stars. She's favorite with many 


underwear under the mechanics' overalls 
which are soaked with gasoline and then 
ignited just before the dive. The heat 
from the fire makes the woolen undies 
itch her skin. 

Like most girls, when she first reached 
the film capital she began casting about 
for work in front of the camera and al- 
though she has found much of it, she never 
is in the billing. 

Mary will swim the deepest ocean or 
scale the highest mountain for any femi- 

nine star — if the paycheck is sufficient. 
Since her debut as a stunt girl, she has 
perfected and expanded her repertoire 
until now she lists as successful endeavors 
such things as wing walking, parachute 
jumping, changing from auto to plane or 
speedboat to plane; balloon ascensions, 
escaping from locked mail sack under 
water, playing water polo in speed boat, 
driving motorcycle through walls or burn- 
ing buildings, 600-foot slide-for-life while

Making Love By The Stars! 

There Are Twelve types of husbands, 
roughly speaking, corresponding to 
the twelve signs of the zodiac. And 
since each has his own special character- 
istics he has to be treated in a special way. 
To hold her mate a woman cannot fight 
the stars that influence him. Once she 
knows what they signify, it's as if she held 
the key to marital happiness in her hand. 
By judging your husband from the types 
of Hollywood celebrities revealed in this 
article you may be able to possess that 
key . . . 

Supposing you were married to a man 
born under the sign of Capricorn (Dec. 23 
to Jan. 20) , like CARY GRANT. The first 
thing is to make sure he has some place in 
the house that belongs to him alone — be- 
cause he has tremendous need of solitude 
occasionally. He's apt to live in a world 
apart and sometimes, of course, it becomes 
necessary to make these Capricorns face 
reality. Unless they're handled intelli- 
gently they crawl into a shell and stay 
there! But set a goal in front of them and 
they'll come out of it. Show them how 
valuable you are and they'll tear up the 
earth to make you happy. I've known 
many a Capricorn man who had to be 
jogged awake before he realized he was 
in love — but once awakened he makes a 
tender, considerate and reliable husband. 

Intense Love Nature 

Aquarius men are those bora between 
Jan. 31 and Feb. 19. CLARK GABLE and 
RONALD COLMAN are two exceptionally 
good examples of this type. Coyness and 
little feminine tricks have no appeal for 
them whatever. They see through them 
too quickly. Wonderful sense of percep- 
tion these fellows have. They succeed in 
life where others fail because of it. They 
have the most intense and fixed love 
nature of any of the signs but it's best to 
appeal to them as a friend, not emotion- 
ally. They make dependable mates if you 
do that. Don't expect a man like Gable 
or Colman to react to sentiment or a ro- 
mantic setting, because he won't do it. 
That's why sentimental women frequently 
find an Aquarius husband a little un- 
satisfactory. Stand by him. Know how 
to be his pal and make your role of sweet- 
heart secondary . . . and you won't have 
any trouble keeping him. 

"My husband is a darling," a young 
married woman said recently, "but I'm 
losing him. I don't know why. I have 
plenty of money for the two of us and I've 
been trying to make him give up his work." 
. . . She was almost in tears. . . . 

"Does he belong to the Pisces House — 
that is, does his birthday come between 
February 20 and March 21?" I questioned. 
She admitted that it did. "That's the an- 
swer," I explained. "No man likes to feel 
he is dependent on a woman, naturally, but 
with a Pisces man it's almost an obsession. 
He can't bear to feel he's taking anything 
from anyone. Even though he does lack 
self-confidence and there are plenty of 
times when his ambition needs stimu- 
lating, it has to be done in a subtle way. 
Don't let him be aware you're doing it. 
Go home and make him feel he's the rock 
of Gibraltar and that you are depending on 
him. Whenever he begins feeling that peo- 
ple and fate are against him— and he feels 
that way often — jerk him out of the mood.

Is strong for palship 

Ronald Colman was born under the same sign 
as Clark Gable. Feminine trickery has no 
appeal for this type. They are nature lovers 

Scorpio men, like Dick Powell, have the grit 
to climb the heights — if they have the right 
incentive! And incentive depends on the 
women they love! They are rulers of the earth 

Buoy him up; that is the most important

The last I heard of my young friend, she 
and her husband were on a second honey-

GEORGE BRENT belongs to this House 
of Pisces. Oddly enough, as George him- 
self has confessed, it was only when he 
mastered that feeling of people and fate 
being against him that he reached his real 
success. Actually they have it in them 
to be the most popular people alive, the 
men of this House. But they are terribly 
in need of a woman's faith in them. . . . 

In World of Ideas 

A very nice person who's something of 
a Galahad . . . chivalrous, easily charmed 
by the little things his wife does . . . that 
is the Aries husband (March 22 to April 
20). And WARNER BAXTER is one of 
the outstanding prototypes of his sign. 
You'll find him always looking forward, 
never backward. He's impulsive, full of 
new changes and plans. He lives in a 
world of ideas. His mission in life, like 
that of all Aries gentlemen, is to inspire 
and lead. They have tremendous insight, 
particularly with those in whom they're 
most interested. So don't try to conceal 
anything from them! Deceit is the surest 
way of killing their love. But the surest 
way of retaining it is to make your Aries 
husband proud of you. Make yourself 
popular with his friends, especially his 
men friends, See that you're up to the 
last word in dress and manner and topics 
of the day. And don't argue. An opin- 
ionated wife who likes eternally to dis- 
pute a question quenches the flame in him 
very fast indeed! Another item to re- 
member — he likes to have his family up 
and doing so don't enjoy poor health. 

Unlike Mr. Aries, Mr. Taurus (April 21 
to May 21) is not so keen about showing 
off his wife. He believes very strongly 
that the woman's place is in the home and 
in family life. You'll do well not to let 
his friends like you too much because he's 
jealous. Just enough to thrill a girl's

Lauchter, Romance And music make Mexico what it is, a country vibrant with 
warmth and color. And because of this, the small city of Ensenada with 
* its quaint old country atmosphere and its modern, comfortable hotel, 
situated on the water's edge, has become the playground for Hollywood stars 
who seek relaxation far away from the grinding of cameras and hurry and 
bustle of studio activities. 

What is worn at this Mexican coast resort is the question uppermost in 
feminine minds. It is expertly answered by two charming Universal stars, 
Binnie Barnes who just completed work on Three Smart Girls, and Gloria 
Stuart whose latest opus for Universal was Girl on the Front Page. Binnie 
and Gloria along with other Hollywood luminaries were found vacationing 
by a prying cameraman whose duty is to bring readers the latest news from 
screenland's fashion center. 

At present it might be hard to realize the sun will be shining soon again 
but we have a hunch that winter will end in the near future, so it is safe 
to proceed with plans, at least, for printed silks, billowing chiffons and bathing 
suits. These last items, by the way, are getting gayer and gayer, and cleverer 
and cleverer. So many different things accompany them, such as shorts and 
jackets like those worn by Mary Astor; trousers and capes as preferred by 
Madge Evans; wrap-around beach shawls, and whatnots, to say nothing of 

Binnie Barnes is ready for a swim 
in a pareo made from an imported 
Oriental cotton print. She wears 
a short oil silk coat in a delight- 
ful shade of orange. Her bamboo 
matting hat is appliqued with 
matching flowers. Outfit shown 
came from Kahala Importing Co. 

Gloria Stuart spends a leisurely day 
attired in a sports outfit of Mexican 
inspiration. A backless dress of 
sage green novelty cotton is cov- 
ered by a short bolero jacket. Skirt 
and jacket are deeply fringed. A 
large Mexican sombrero adds at-

a bathing suit being an integral part of any number of evening gowns! 
Of course! And why not? You get hot and tired dancing, so at inter- 
mission you nonchalantly fling yourself out of wisps of tulle and chiffon, 
spangles and satin and dive off the deep end into phosphorescent waters 
that wipe worry and weariness from body and mind. 

The choicest materials for these evening-gown-bathing-suits are 
water-proof satin, cellophane and the sheerest silk wool. After drying 
arms and legs, slip on a pair of cobwebby stockings and slide into the 
chiffons and sequins and lo, you are ready for the next dance, rejuvenated 
and bright as a pre-Depression dollar. 

Whether you visit Mexico, Florida or points south, why don't you follow 
the styles set by Hollywood screen stars and wear: A gay colored ban- 
dana or large Mexican sombrero? Mexican sandals? Printed percale for 
evening? Fresh flowers in your hair with a pareo? A satin bathing suit 
printed with the alphabet? Checked Palaka cloth (from Hawaii) beach 
coats with amusing straw pockets? Woven raffia belts and headbands? 
A polka dot sunbonnet to match your playsuit? The new short beach 
dress or long beach coat? A sunsuit made from Celanese's new mask 
fabric with a short black taffeta beach coat? Oil silk beach coats in a 
delightful orange shade? The men? They'll love it! 

Marjorie Montgomery designed these 
practical play outfits. Binnie chooses 
blue and white striped shorts topped 
by a white linen dress while Gloria 
prefers red and white polka dot. Note 
the sunbonnet with cape attached 


White linen with huge flowers in bright blue 
and rust make this charming resort frock. Raffia 
flowers are tucked in at the waistline and 
used to trim the large white linen hat. Hat 
and dress designed by Marjorie Montgomery 

Cotton evening gowns are essential for resort 
wear. Gloria's dress is an old fashion printed 
percale in yellow with a brief quilted jacket. 
Binnie wears white waffle pique patterned in 
gayly colored flowers. Gowns by Patricia Perkins

%^uce Pores. . .<s^ lines 

MlSS Kathleen Williams: "A Pond's Cold Cream treatment makes my akin 
feel wonderful— just so fresh and invigorated. It smooths out little lines." 

\oU'RE TWENTY... you're twenty- 
five . . . you're thirty or more! 

The years slip by quietly enough. 
The things that tell it to the world are 
— little lines and — a gradual coarsen- 
ing of the skin's very texture. 

Coarse pores and ugly, deepening 
lines do more to add years to your face 
than any other skin faults. What causes 
them ? How can you ward them off? 

A Faulty Underskin— 

Both come from a faulty underskin. 

Pores grow larger when tiny oil glands 
underneath get clogged . . . Lines form 
when fibres underneath sag, lose their tone. 

To keep these little glands and fibres 
functioning properly, you must invigorate 
that underskin. You can — with regular 
Pond's deep-skin treatments. 

Pond's Cold Cream contains specially 
processed oils. It goes deep into the pores, 
clears them of make-up, dirt, clogging oils. 
Then you pat more cold cream in briskly. 
You feel the circulation waken. Your skin 
tingles with new vigor. 


modern young aristocrat, nays 
it's easy tu have a lovely skin 
in spite of sports and a whirl- 
ing London season. "I have 
learned that Pond's is the 
best way to avoid lines, 
roughness, or coarse pores.*' 

Day and night — this thor- 
ough cleansing and rousing 
with Pond's Cold Cream. 
Soon cloggings cease. Pores 
actually reduce. Under tis- 
sues are toned, and lines 
smooth out. You look years younger 

Day and night— this simple care 

Here's the simple -treatment that hun- 
dreds of women follow, because it does 
more than cleanse their skin: — 
Every night, pat on Pond's Cold Cream to 
soften and release deep-lodged dirt and make- 
up. Wipe it all off. At once your skin looks 
clearer! Now rouse your underskin. Pat in 
more cream — briskly. The circulation stirs. 
Glands waken. Tissues are invigorated. 
Every morning (and before make-up) repeat 
. .. Your skin is smooth for powder — fresh, vital 
looking. Your whole face is brighter, younger!

With William Powell and Myma both 
at their suave best, plus an 
entire cast that troupes to the 
hilt. After the Thin Man car- 
ries on where The Thin Man 
left off, and does it in a way 
that will make you more than 
ever sold on the Powell -Loy 
team, even though you gasp 
at the surprise twist at the fadeout. Given 
a scintillating story, plus superb direction 
by Woody Van Dyke, killings, blackmail, 
netherworld against high society and a 
better cloaking of the killer's identity than 
in any previous film of this kind, the world 
and his wife promise to wear well-beaten 
paths to cinema box-offices to see this 

Powell and Myrna Loy return from a 
honeymoon to their San Francisco home 
and are immediately faced with solving 
the mysterious death of a cousin's philan- 
dering and generally obnoxious husband, 
who proposed to give up his young wife 
to a former suitor for $25,000. Suspicion 
is directed at almost everyone in the cast 
except Powell and Miss Loy. Elissa Landi, 
the neglected wife, Joseph Calleia, night 
club manager, Dorothy McNulty, mercen- 
ary entertainer who has been alert for 
the dead rounder's money, Paul Fix, the 

Keenly dramatic is 20th Century-Foi's Lloyds 
of London. Here are Madeleine Carroll and 
Tyrone Power, focal points of love interest 

entertainer's secret husband, George 
Zucco, a psychiatrist, William Law, a sin- 
ister Chinese tongman, and others are in- 
volved. Miss Landi's relatives, led by the 
testy Jessie Ralph, join with Powell in 
trying to clear the family name and also 
bring about exposure of the killer. 

James Stewart, as the young social lion, 
who lost Elissa Landi to the bounder, 
played by Alan Marshall, has a fat role 
which he handles to perfection. 

GOLD DIGGERS OF 1937— (Warners) 
— One of the better musicals in which 
catchy tunes, smart lines, 
spectacular dance ensembles, 
a novel plot, with an occas- 
ional incongruity blend to 
make pleasing entertainment 
for those who like their film 
fare on a lavish scale. While 
Dick Powell and Joan 
Blondell come in for stellar billing, per- 
formances by Glenda Farrell, Victor 
Moore, Lee Dixon, Osgood Perkins, 
Charles D. Brown and Rosalind Marquis 
are such that each has a fat role in which 
they lend much to the picture. 

When a troupe of all-but-stranded 
chorus girls are put on the same train with 
conventioning insurance salesmen, things 
are bound to happen. Add two gambling 
members of a theatrical producing trium- 
virate to the crowd and you have the be- 
ginning of Gold Diggers of 1937. Dick 
Powell falls for Joan Blondell, one of the 
chorus girls, and sends her to his boss as 
a secretary. Osgood Perkins, one of the 
crooked theatrical men, has a yen for 
another chorus girl, Glenda Farrell. 

The two theatrical men, having squan- 
dered company funds, hit on a plan of in- 
suring the decrepit third, played by Victor 
Moore. Powell writes the policy for a

million, then sets out to keep Moore alive 
so his income from premiums may last 
and make it possible for him to marry 
Miss Blondell, now an insurance firm sec- 
retary. Miss Farrell, as the tool of Perkins 
and Osgood, proceeds to set a fast pace for 
the insured Moore, who, under the watch- 
ful eye of Powell, seems likely to live 
longer than his two associates plan, and 
their exposure is imminent. 

How Powell, Miss Blondell and Miss 
Farrell, who finds she's falling in love with 
the man she set out to speed toward death, 
bring about exposure of the crooked pro- 
ducing duo excites interest. 

The screen's perfect "married couple"! William

Topping Topper, Miss Eve Lawton, of 
San Francisco, caught a sneak preview of 
The Lost Horizon, but wouldn't let Topper 
get scooped. She says: 

"I've just seen the screen version of 
James Hilton's grand novel. The Lost Hori- 
zon and I pronounce it a genuine master- 
piece. In direct contrast with the usual per- 
version made by the cinema super-minds 
when transcribing a great book for the pic- 
tures, this time the boys have really cap- 
tured all the amazing suspense and mysticism 
that one felt on reading the book itself. 
Moreover, although I have never been one 
to go into a dither over any movie hero, 
however good, I am forced to concede that 
Ronald Colman is at once a handsome brute 
and a splendid actor." 

tury-Fox) — One of the foremost dramatic 
pictures of the year, its merit 
will stand sturdily among the 
tops in a season of outstanding 
productions. Having the sub- 
stance and quality to excite 
strong word-of-mouth com- 
ment, plus a generous share 
of inviting names, it is richly 
romantic and powerfully emotional. One 
suspects that the writers and producers 
took some liberties with actual history in 
creating the story of Lloyds of London, 
but none will mind that. 

There is sweep and magnitude in this 
historic romance, but magnitude is not 
permitted to overshadow the intimate, 
warmly-projected human affairs of lovers 
and schemers, patriots and poltroons, 
whose interwoven dramas shape the main 

narrative. The picture is off to an immed- 
iate heart appeal in the boyish adventure 
of Freddie Bartholomew and Douglas 
Scott, the latter as the Nelson boy destined 
to be the hero of Trafalgar. 

Tyrone Power, the grown-up counter- 
part of Bartholomew, becomes the domin- 
ating factor in Lloyds. He gives a mag- 
nificent performance, displaying every- 
thing essential to gain screen idolatry. The 
beautiful Madeleine Carroll scores in a 
vital impersonation of an English aristo- 

Sir Guy Standing is stalwart in the role 
of Lloyds' founder. Virginia Field does 
creditable work as the waitress. 

You'll find Gold Diggers of 1937 scintillating 
entertainment and Dick Powell and Joan 
Blondell are shown as much in love on the 
screen as they are in real life. Don't miss it

Hailed as Adolph Zukor's Silver Jubilee

One might expect much of

GREAT GUY — (Grand National) — 
Those who have been waiting to see how 
Jimmy Cagney's comeback 
picture will measure up to 
past screen efforts of the fiery 
Irishman will not be disap- 
pointed, for he's surely a 
"great guy" in Great Guy. 
Tongue-in-the cheek critics 
have been rather unsure that 
after his court battle over contracts he 
would emerge without some setback. 

The picture is a meaty one in which 
Cagney, pinch-hitting for a super-honest 
city weights and measures department 
head, who has been purposely injured in 
a framed auto crash, carries on in such 
legitimate fashion that he has the mayor, 
ward-heelers and big politicians on a 
limb. Then comes the boomerang that 
brings Jimmy out on top and the men who 
would besmirch him are punished. His 
romance with Mae Clarke is of the on- 
again-off-again-Finnegan variety, mostly 
because his work strikes at the reputation 
of her boss, whom she thinks a model of 
virtue in the business world. When 
Cagney proves the contrary, Mae clinches 
with Jimmy and happiness rules. 

— A light story of an Arkansas country 
boy, who has a flair for 
writing popular songs, meets 
city gal, goes to big city and 
gets into trouble with gang- 
sters. Pinky Tomlin and Toby 
Wing carry the leads. Tomlin 
takes his cow to New York. 
The highlights of the picture 
come when the cow makes a New York 
apartment her home and when Tomlin 
meets Toby's drunk brother, Arthur 
Houseman. Houseman and the cow steal 
the picture as far as performance goes. 
Pinky makes a convincing country boy. 
Others in the cast are Kane Richman, 
Russell Hopton, Jerry Bergen and others. 

-^This is one you should not miss, if only 
to see if Deanna Durbin, 13- 
year-old singing prodigy, is

With a ready-made radio 
following gained by appear- 
ances on the Cantor airings, 
this girl clicks well in her first 
picture in which she shares 
the feminine lead with two other girls — 
Nan Grey and Barbara Read. Apparently 
Universal has made a smart move in 
recognizing the limitations of early teen 
age, and thus gained a high-class film that 
might not have been so good had 
they focused the entire feminine attention 
on little Deanna. Binnie Barnes, Charles 
Winninger, Alice Brady and Ray Milland 
have important adult roles.

When Pores Become Clogged They Become Little 

"Dirt Pockets" and Produce Blackheads, Enlarged 

Pores, Muddy Skin and Other Blemishes! 

When you do not cleanse your skin properly, 
every pore becomes a tiny "dirt pocket." The 
dirt keeps on accumulating and the pore be- 
comes larger and larger and blackheads and 
muddy skin and other blemishes follow. 

"But," you say, "it is impossible for 'dirt 
pockets' to form in my skin. I clean my skin 
every morning and every night." But, are 
you sure you really cleanse your skin, or do 
you only go through the motions? 

Surface Cleansing Not Enough 

Some methods, as much faith as you have in 
them, only give your skin a "lick-and-a-prom- 
ise." They don't "houseclean" your skin, which 
is what is necessary. 

What you want is deep cleansing! Many 
methods only "clean off" the skin. They do 
not clean it out! Any good housekeeper knows 
the difference. 

What you want is a cream that does 
more than "grease" the surface of your 
skin. You want a cream that penetrates the 
pores! Such a cream, distinctly, is Lady 
Esther Face Cream. It is a cream that 
gets below the surface — into the pores. 

Dissolves the Waxy Dirt 

Gently and soothingly, it penetrates the 
tiny openings. There, it goes to work on 

the accumulated waxy dirt. It breaks up this grimy 
dirt— dissolves it— and makes it easilyremov- 
able. All the dirt comes out, not just part of it! 
As Lady Esther Face Cream cleanses the skin, 
it also lubricates it. It resupplies the skin with 
a fine oil that overcomes dryness and scaly 
patches and keeps the skin soft and smooth. 
So smooth, in fact, does it make the skin, that 
the skin takes powder perfectly without any 
preliminary "greasing." 

Definite Results! 

Lady Esther Face Cream will be found to be 
definitely efficient in the care of your skin. It 
will solve many of the complexion problems 
you now have. 

But let a free trial prove this to you. Just 
send me your name and address and by return 
mail I'll send you a 7-days' tube. Then, see for 
yourself the difference it makes in your skin. 

With the tube of cream, I'll also send you

Big Broadcast of 1937 — (Paramount) — 
Not quite up to its predecessors, but satis-

Ramona— (20th Century) — Can be rec- 
ommended for its beautiful color treat-

you haven't seen Adolphe Menjou and

nearest neighborhood theatre. 

Reunion — (20th Century-Fox) — The 
Dionne quintuplets score again with Jean 
Hersholt, Dorothy Peterson, Slim Sum-

Preparing for a closeup. Here Grace Moore 
awaits Robert Riskin's call of "Camera!" on 
the Interlude set. The slate indicates the scene 
and "take." The microphone is seen above 

American artist, he scoffs at flatterers, and 
gives the songbird an analysis of herself 
that is the direct antithesis of what all 
others voice. 

Aline MacMahon, Henry Stephenson, 
Catherine Doucet, Edgar Kennedy and 
Luis Alberni lend much to the qualities 
of Interlude as entertaining screen fare. 

The Mexican sequences of Interlude 
give Miss Moore opportunity for several 
songs during a Latin festival, in the course 
of which Grant stages a realistic fight with 
two hecklers of the diva. Grant's actions 
show him a paradox, insulting the singing 
artist one moment by drawing her picture 
without a face — saying he draws only that 
which he sees and hers is a complete 
blank — then going into fisticuffs when un- 
appreciative listeners to her songs inter- 
rupt her singing. 

The road to romance in Interlude is a 
rough one from the start, but the vehicle 
gives Grace Moore and Cary Grant fine 
opportunity to express their respective 
abilities — advantages they never for a 
moment overlook.

Taking Risks in Hollywood! 

Lloyds of London was born in a coffee shop! 
This scene from the 20th Century-Fox film of 
that title shows bell in upper left corner, which 
was rung once when an insured ship had met 
disaster; twice for favorable news reports 

With Lloyds of London reaching the 
screen to tell how this most unusual 
of insurance firms came into being 
interest is stimulated in the strange guar- 
antees written by Lloyds and others on 
film productions and those who work in 
pictures. Lloyds takes almost any gamble 
— against your money. They'll "bet" 
almost any money a thing will, or will 
NOT happen — if you pay the premium, 
which sometimes is too high to make in- 
suring practical. 

Lloyds will insure a film producer 
against a possible "flop," but the cost 
makes cinema makers rely mostly on their 
own judgment as to what material will be 
box office. 

The average premium charged by 
Lloyds to the studios, in insuring start 
against injury or death during the produc- 
tion of a motion picture, is 50 cents per 
$100 worth of insurance per person. A 
star's value is assessed by Lloyds by taking 
the entire estimated cost of the finished 
picture. For example, in insuring Ruth 
Chatterton during the making of Dods- 
worth. Samuel Goldwyn took out a mil- 
lion-dollar policy. Walter Huston, Mary 
Astor, Paul Lukas, William Wyler, the 
director, and Odette Myrtil has equal 
"protection," which meant $5,000 pre- 
miums on each. 

The stars have to undergo rigid physi- 
cal examination before Lloyds write a 
policy covering a picture role. This makes 
it essential that stars keep fit, else a 
coveted role might be denied them. Lloyds 
will insure a rather bad risk, but the pre- 
mium would make a producer shy. 

Lloyds' insurance covers film produc- 
tions in two ways — partial loss or total 
loss. This means that if a star becomes 
ill and the company cannot "shoot around" 

It is essential that players keep fit in order to be 
covered by a Lloyds policy, as was Mary Astor 
in Dodsworth. Riding helped her achieve this 

him or her, Lloyds stand the cost of the 
delay, which might run $15,000 to $20,000 
or more per day. In case of death of a 
star and the entire picture so far made 
had to be junked, Lloyds would assume 
the loss. Easily replaceable persons in a 
cast cannot be insured. 

Lloyds' estimators are picture wise. 
They must see the budget and make sure 
a million-dollar picture is a million-dollar 
picture. Preparation for the insurance 
examinations are often as rigorous as 
training for a boxing match. It took 
Edward Arnold six weeks to get in trim 
for his million-dollar examination for 
Come and Get It. Six weeks of arduous 
boxing, riding, golfing, walking, running 
and swimming — plus foregoing of rich

foods — took off excess avoirdupois, which 
otherwise might have made him a poor 

No picture can be insured with Lloyds 
for more than a million, regardless of what 
the film costs. Insurance becomes effec- 
tive only when a player actually begins 
appearing before the camera in the initial 
scene shot. 

Hollywood probably is the source of 
more unusual insurance protection than 
any other similar area in the world. Film 
folk can, and do, insure almost anything. 
Beautiful legs, nimble fingers, dimples, 
hair, even Ben Turpin's strabismus, and 
the shock of twins, triplets — even quin- 
tuplets — are and have been "covered" by 
insurance at one time or another in and 
around Hollywood. 

Corpses Insured Too 

In passing, it might be revealed that 
corpses have been insured. So have false 
teeth and human embryos. 

Shirley Temple recently was insured by 
Lloyds on a $25,000 accident policy. 
Nothing really newsy about that, but if 
you were to read the policy you would find 
that America's No. 1 juvenile star "must 
not go to war, fly in an airplane, or be 
killed or injured while intoxicated" — if 
the beneficiary is to collect on Shirley's 

One of the first of these unusual policy 
yarns to emanate from Hollywood con- 
cerned the former custard pie catcher — 
Ben Turpin. Ben's cocked eyes were a 
film asset and he wanted protection 
against their going straight again. Many 
tales were told of this famous policy — 
some quoted a million-dollar policy, others 
claimed it was only a publicity's man's 
brain storm. The truth was: 

Turpin had his strabismic affliction in- 
sured for $25,000, but here's the gag— the 
policy covered only two days in 1921, from 
noon, November 19 to noon of November 
21. The premium was $106.18 — a bargain 
when one considers the publicity it 
brought to Turpin. 

Last summer Merle Armitage, Los 
Angeles impresario, took out a $10,000 
policy covering the two-day appearance 
in Hollywood of Leopold Stokowski and 
his Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. 
Armitage went to much expense in ar- 
ranging for the Stokowski musical treat 
and had anything happened to prevent the 
orchestra concerts, Armitage would have

Facts It Will Pay You to Know! 

'"pHE "Common Cold" is the scourge 
-*- of our civilization. 

Every year it takes more in lives and 
health and expense than any other ail- 
ment to which we're subject. 

The sad part of it is that much of the 
misery caused by colds is due to care- 
lessness or ignorance in treating colds. 

A cold, as your doctor will tell you, is 
an internal infection caused by a virus or 
germ. In other words, regardless of the 
locality of the symptoms, a cold is some- 
thing lodged within the system. 

Everything but the Right Thing! 

The failure of many people to recog- 
nize the true nature of a cold results in 
much mistreatment of colds. More often 
than not, people do everything but the 
right thing in the treatment of a cold. 

They employ externals of all kinds 
when it's obvious that you've got to get 
at a cold from the inside. They swallow 
all kinds of preparations which, for seven 
months of the year, are good for every- 
thing but colds and which suddenly be- 
come "also good for colds" when the 
cold weather sets in. 

Many of these methods are good as far 
as they go — but they don't go far enough! 
They don't treat a cold internally and 
thereby get at the infection in the system. 
The result often is that a cold progresses 
to the point where "complications" set 
in and it becomes a serious matter. 

What a Cold Calls for 

It's obvious that a cold calls, first of all, 
for a cold treatment! A preparation that's 
good for all kinds of different ailments 
can't be equally good for colds. 

A cold, furthermore, calls for inter- 
nal treatment. An infection within the 

system must be got at from the inside. 

Grove's Laxative Bromo Quinine tab- 
lets supply reliable treatment. 

First of all, Bromo Quinine tablets are 
cold tableti ! They are made for colds and 
only colds. They are not a "cure -all" or a 
preparation only incidentally good for 

Secondly, Bromo Quinine tablets are 
internal treatment. They work within 
you and they do four important things. 

Four Important Effects 

They open the bowels, an acknowl- 
edgedly wise step in treating a cold. 

They combat the infection in the 

They relieve the headache and fever. 

They tone the system and help fortify 
against further attack. 

This is the fourfold effect you want 
for the treatment of a cold and in Bromo 
Quinine you get it in the form of a 
single tablet. 

Safe as Well as Effective 

Grove's Laxative Bromo Quinine tab- 
lets impose no penalty for their use.They 
contain nothing harmful and are safe to 
take. Their dependability is proven by 
over 40 years of use. 

Bromo Quinine tablets now come 
sugar-coated as well as plain. The sugar- 
coated tablets are exactly the same as the 
regular except that they are coated with 
sugar for palatability. 

Every drug store in America sells 
Grove's Bromo Quinine tablets. Let them 
be your first thought in case of a cold. 

Ask for, and demand, Grove's Bromo 
Quinine tablets! The few pennies' cost 
may save you a lot in worry, suspense 
and expense.

Twelve Months; Six Pictures 

Now, talking to her in the living room 
of her lovely new apartment with its 
modern furniture and its white walls, it 
seems a long time ago. But her twelve 
months and six pictures in Hollywood 
haven't changed Eleanore's original out- 
look on this business of being famous. 

"This is treason!" I said. "You've been 
here a year now and you haven't even 
been linked in a front page romance. 
You're a great disappointment to me, 

She grinned at this ribbing. The Whitney 
has a sense of humor that is as modern as 
tomorrow's styles. She looked beyond me, 
wistfully, a far-away look in her eye. "In 
fact," she admitted thoughtfully, "the first 
seven months I was here I didn't even have 
a date!" 

I sat bolt upright. "What?" I demanded 
furiously. "What was I doing? Serving 
as a stand-in for the younger generation?" 

Eleanore looked at me doubtfully. 
"That's right," she conceded grudgingly. 
"If we count you . . ." 

Mrs. Whitney looked up wearily from 
her magazine. "If you two are going to 
start that again — !" 

I pointed an accusing finger at her 
daughter who, attired in blue chenille 
lounging pajamas, was lounging most 
effectively against the divan. "I'll leave 
it to you, Mrs. Whitney! Who showed 
Eleanore the town? Who warned her 
against these fiends in producers' clothing? 
Who bought her malted milks in Holly- 
wood and chocolate sodas in Chicago?" 

Eleanore shook her auburn head. "It's 
all right, dear," she assured her mother. 
"He's always that way when it rains." 

I lit my pipe and withdrew into a mantle 
of wounded dignity. I withdrew, that is, 
until Eleanore said in a loud stage whisper, 
"Don't look now, folks, but he's being 

"Listen, Whitney." I said coldly. "I come

out here in a pouring rain. I expose my- 
self to a cold, maybe even pneumonia! 
And what happens? You're late! And 
when you do come in you haven't any 
make-up on and your hair's all stringy!" 

"It was not stringy!" she said indig- 
nantly. "And what's more, since when 
have you had the right to consider your- 
self company?" 

I glowered at her. "Do we get along 
with this interview or don't we? What 
would your public say to this flippancy?" 

"Ah! My Public!" 

She rolled her eyes in mock tragedy. 
"Ah, my public!" Suddenly she leaned 
back against the divan, curling her legs 
turk fashion, beneath her. Her tiny face 
was suddenly as serious as a moment 
before it had been mischievous. "Kidding 
aside, Dick, what is there to tell you that 
you don't already know? You were the 
first person I knew in Hollywood. You 
know who and what I like . . ." 

I shook my head. "That's not enough, 
Eleanore. How do you like Hollywood? 
What're you getting out of it? Are you 
happy? Do you get a kick out of being 

She picked up the bouillon cup from the 
tray beside her and sipped it thoughtfully. 
While Eleanore is very frank — almost too 
much so — she isn't given to committing 
herself until she's sure just what she 
wants to say. Once said, she'll stick to it 
through thick and thin. 

Her forte is a determination that, at 
first, seems incongruous with her tiny

features and twinkling feet. But when 
you know her background, how she earned 
her screen success the hard way, you're 
not so surprised at the level head on this 
nineteen-year-old. I remember when she 
was making her first picture, Millions in 
the Air. She'd sprained her ankle so badly 
while practicing a new dance routine that 
I'd had to take her to the Hollywood Hos- 
pital that night to have her foot taped and 
bandaged. She could hardly walk when 
she left the emergency dressing room. 
Yet the next day she did that difficult 
routine three times before the cameras. 
I know, you see. I was on the sidelines 
with her mother, wondering as she was, 
just how long Eleanore could hold up. 

Eleanore glanced up from her cup; 
looked out at the driving rain that beat 
against the French windows on this quiet 
Sunday afternoon. "I don't know just how 
I do feel about Hollywood," she admitted 

Grateful for Good Fortune 

"I've had a lot of good fortune here. I'm 
grateful for that. But you never seem to 
get to really know anyone. Know what 
they're like underneath, I mean. One 
thing I have gained here. That's a feeling 
of security. To be able to save my money, 
to put it into annuities, to look out for the 
future." She grinned suddenly. 

"I sound like I was eighty! But after 
trouping in vaudeville, trying to get a start 
— it's mighty nice to have a little sense of 

I nodded. Eleanore made her stage 
debut when she was eight. At ten she 
was a familiar attraction in the theatres 
of Cleveland, her home town. When she 
was eleven, a local stage manager, im- 
pressed with her ability, asked Bill Robin- 
sen, the greatest tap dancer of them all, 
to watch the little girl's routines. That 
ebony gentleman was so impressed that 
he agreed to coach Eleanore personally. 
Whenever Bill Robinson played Cleveland, 
you could find Eleanore and her mother 
backstage, waiting for the precious mo- 
ments he could spare to rehearse his 

Two years later she was on the road 
with Rae Samuels, the Blue Streak of 
Vaudeville. For three years she toured 
the country, playing every city on the 
Orpheum circuit as a member of Miss 
Samuels' act. Eleanore's mother, with 
her husband and younger daughter to 
care for, couldn't accompany her on the 
load. Many nights the kid cried herself 
to sleep because of homesickness and 
loneliness for those she loved best. 

So now you'll understand why security 
and a home seem so good to this little girl 
of the dancing feet and the large, luminous 
eyes. She hasn't always had them. 

I said to her then, "If you feel that way 
— the desire to be safe and secure — maybe 
that's why you've never fallen in love." 

Security in Romance 

She nodded a little. "I'd want security 
in romance like anything else. It isn't 
too much to ask, is it? One marriage is 
enough! When I do get married, it'll be to 
a man older than myself. At least I hope 
it will! I don't think I've ever really cared 
for any boy who was just about my age. 
Not even school girl crushes! That's one 
thing I've never liked very much out here. 
Reading in the papers all about who has a 
'crush' on whom! Why, they keep linking 
your name with fellows you don't even 
know, let alone go out with!" 

She crinkled her nose with distaste as 
she mentioned that. Since she's been in 
Hollywood her dates have been almost

entirely confined to Robert Taylor, Johnny 
Downs and Bob Howard, son of a west 
coast auto magnate. Not one has been a

She's liked them all, enjoyed being in their 
company — and that's that. 

If I know Eleanore, she'll never really

fellow who is hard to get. She's had to 
work too hard to achieve what she's 
wanted. And, following her psychology, 
what isn't hard to earn isn't much fun 
having to this young lady. She hopes to 
marry before she's twenty-four. And 
when she does . . . goodbye to the career 
and the silver screen! 

"Not that I'm looking for romance," she 
added hastily. "You'd never find it that 
way. I'm just like every other girl. I 
imagine. We all think about getting 
married some time. And when the real 
thing comes along, I'll know it." 

Real Benefactor 

There is one dramatic story behind 
Eleanore Whitney's success that has never 
been told. I'm privileged to tell it here 
on the condition that the man's name isn't 
used. "You know why?" she said. "After 
Walter Winchell mentioned his helping 
me, the poor man was overrun with other 
people. I owe so very much to him that 
the very least I can do is follow his wishes 
and keep his name a secret." 

There is, in Cleveland, a middle-aged 
gentleman whose kindly benevolences 
have helped more than one boy and girl 
on the high road to success. The owner of 
a large department store, his greatest in- 
terest has always been in aiding young- 
sters, giving them advantages that he 
never enjoyed. Eleanore Whitney's career 
can be said to have started the day that 
this man first saw her dance. 

You may remember Benny Friedman, 
the University of Michigan All-American 
quarterback. He was sent to college by 
this quiet benefactor. There are any 
number of crippled children who are 
walking today because of operations for 
which this gentleman paid. His charities 
are as widespread as they are little known. 
He met Eleanore and her mother soon 
after she made her first bow from the 

He was impressed with the tiny girl's 
ability and said so. More important, he 
wanted to do something about it. He in- 
sisted on seeing that Eleanore had the 
finest professional teachers that Cleveland 
and New York could provide. Her school- 
ing was largely paid for by this man. To 
this day, his kindly, wise counsel has 
guided almost every step of Eleanore's 

Prince Behind Scene 

Only recently she wrote him, asking 
how she might repay his generosity. His 
reply was indicative of the man. He would, 
he said, receive all the repayment he 
wanted by watching Eleanore's success 
and happiness; by the fine things she could 
do now for her own family. When Holly- 
wood learns of this background to her 
career, the cinema citadel will be more 
certain than ever that she should be 
labeled as Hollywood's latest Cinderella! 

That Eleanore enjoys her work in pic- 
tures, I know. Currently she is playing 
with Jack Benny in College Holiday and 
it seems like old home week to her. For 
over a year she traveled with Jack and 
Mary Livingstone as a member of their 
stage unit. That was just prior to her being 
signed by Rudy Vallee and screen tested 
for the part that was to bring her to Holly-

Last Minute Newt: Pinky Tomlin and 
Toby Wing'» engagement haj been an- 
nounced, but when I asked Pinky about 
it at Ida Lupino's cocktail party, he said 
that they weren't in any rush and probably 
wouldn't get married for a year or more 
. . . Dick Foran and Claudia Morgan, 
Ralph's daughter, are planning a merger 
. . . The newlyweds, Anne Nagel and Ross 
Alexander, take their dachshund with them 
to night clubs and let it run around the 
floor . . . Anita Colby, told me when I 
questioned her, that she and Walter Kane 
would not marry . . . but they are still being 
seen in all the late spots together . . . Anne 
Shirley and Owen Davis, Jr., have called 
off their romance. 

It's a toss up whether the Hollywood 
younger set is getting Scottish, or if their 
lust for a new game has caused them to 
find a use for their ancient phonograph 
records. Whatever the case may be, Anne 
Shirley at a recent Capehart party passed 
paper and pencils out to her guests and 
told them to number the records, one, two, 
etc., as she played them and to guess what 
they were. Betty Grable won the prize for 
knowing the most old timers and when 
Anne served an ice cream cake that was 
decorated with a chocolate record, for re- 
freshments, Diana Gibson asked Betty if 
she knew the name of that one, too, and 
Betty told her, "Yes, that it was commonly 
known as 'Food.' " 

Success Stories . . . Phyllis Dobson, 
who recently won the title of Miss Cali- 
fornia, has just been signed to a long-term 
contract by the New Universal ... I 
wonder if they remember that she was 
under contract to that studio two years 

ago under the name of Phyllis Ludwig 
and at a considerably lower salary, and 
that they let her go? 

Anne Sheridan, who gave such a grand 
performance in Fighting Youth and then 
for some unknown reason went without 
work for more than a year and a half, is 
making up for lost time now by working 
in two pictures at once, with another 
waiting for her at Warner Brothers. 

The saying goes that everyone during 
their life time writes either a poem, a story 
— or a song. Snooping on this theory we 
found that any number of our younger set 
had written poems, so from time to time — 
if you enjoy them, we're going to publish 
some on these pages. The first is by Anne 
Shirley. She wrote it while working in 
Make Way for a Lady, her latest starring 
vehicle. In many scenes of the picture it 
shows her writing in a diary and during 
the filming rather than just scribble some- 
thing — she made up the following: 

I live in the movie town, 

Where directors and stars reside, 
Where flowers never turn brown, 

And there's a roaring ocean tide. 

Maureen O'Sullivan's mother, who came 
from Ireland to visit Maureen and her 
husband, John Farrow, proved to the sat- 
isfaction of all Maureen's dinner guests at 
a recent gathering that she had psychic 
powers. Mrs. O'Sullivan told everyone 
things about themselves that they declared 
no one else knew . . . which made Alan 
Mowbray ask Maureen how she got away 
with things when she was a child . . . and 
Maureen's answer was — that she didn't . . .

when she dashed into a room for an emo- 
tional close-up scene. Fonda was sur- 
prised, however, when the be-monocled 
stickler for realism dashed a pail of ice 
water over him to make him go into a 
bona fide shiver in a rainstorm sequence. 
"Hank" started to protest, but the cameras 
started rolling and, like a real trouper, he 
played through the scene. 

Nothing is real if it isn't natural, insisted 
Lang — and how could Fonda appear be- 
drenched and battling his way through the 
wet and cold unless he felt that way? 
Likewise, when Fonda and Guinn "Big 
Boy" Williams were supposed to engage in 
a ferocious fight in a hospital ward, it was 
rumored Lang told Fonda that Williams 
said he didn't believe Fonda "could take 
it." Anyway, the scrap was a pip while 
it lasted. Screen fans will remember the 
battle Fonda and Fred MacMurray staged 
in The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, in 
which Miss Sidney also appeared. 

Despite this hard work of being realistic, 
the whole troupe managed to have a pretty 
good time during the shooting of the pic- 
ture. One day, Fonda decided to have a 
laugh at Lang's expense. So he walked 
on the set with his pockets laden with corn 
cob pipes, which he passed around to the 
entire crew. When the director arrived, 
all were puffing merrily on their pipes — 
which smelled so badly Lang offered to 
buy each of them a new one if they only 
would quit smoking the corn cobs*. 

Another day Sylvia nearly drove Henry 
frantic by telling him her maid had heard 
a radio broadcast on which the announcer 
had stated Fonda was the star of a certain 
picture, which was so bad all Hollywood 
has been talking about it. 

And the entire troupe almost forgot 
about work the day Doris Dudley ap- 
peared on the set with a five-weeks-old 
lion cub, which she presented to Lang. 
Doris, incidentally, visited the set fre-

quently in addition to being seen in 
numerous night spots with Lang. 

More than forty different sets, a record 
number at United Artists, were designed 
by Alexander Toluboff and constructed on 
eight stages and on the back lot for You 
Only Live Once. One, covering several 
acres and reproducing the buildings, 
towers and recreation yard of an Ameri- 
can prison, sprawled into another studio, 
the Educational lot, adjoining United 
Artists. For fog scenes the entire set was 
covered with canvas and quantities of a 
special mineral oil vaporized and forced 
through compressors. Tons of cracked ice 
scattered on the ground kept the fog from 
rising too rapidly. 

Taking the mountain to Mahomet! This spa- 
cious prison was built on the studio lot for 
the Goldwyn production You Only Live Once 

Miss Sidney and Fonda climbed moun- 
tains, waded swamps and battled desert 
sand without leaving the studio. From 
the stars' and technicians' standpoint, 
working under hundreds of blazing lights, 
it was more arduous than the real thing. 
Toward the end of the picture Miss Sidney 
stumbled down a mountainside on stage 6 
and tore a ligament in her right knee. 

Among the hundreds of atmospheric 
players engaged for You Only Liue Once 
were several old-time silent picture 
favorites, including Harry Myers and 
Florence Turner. Both were stars in their 
day, but the whirligig of Hollywood has 
forced them into the extra ranks. Iron- 
ically, Myers was one of Henry Fonda's 
boyhood screen idols. 

The youngest member of the cast gave 
the director a taste of real temperament. 
Maurice Black, Jr., aged twenty-three 
days, yelled at Lang, Miss Sidney and 
Fonda, ruined several scenes, and had the 
whole studio catering to him. Like other 
actors of his age, he boasted a nurse, 
welfare worker and private car that de- 
livered him right to the door of the 
nursery which California law says must 
be provided on the set. Maurice could be 
in the studio only two hours a day, on the 
set under the lights only a total of twenty 
minutes, and only thirty seconds at a time. 

Charles "Chic" Sale did his final role in 
You Only Live Once. A few days after 
the noted comedian had completed a 
characterization in which he played him- 
self, minus the chin whiskers and make- 
up of his usual hick portrayal, and before 
the picture was completed, he was stricken 
with the illness that caused his death. 

You Only Live Once typifies the extent 
to which film producers have freed them- 
selves of the necessity for far-flung loca- 
tions. Art directors and studio artisans 
are capable of creating almost anything 
needed in the way of sets. 

So natural do they fabricate nature that 
even the most fastidious fan seldom can 
detect the synthetic from the real. 

Quite often synthetic nature goes into 
the finished film finer and more eye ap- 
pealing than would be true were the action 
to take place in the actual handiwork of 
nature. This is true because "corraling 
the world indoors" permits of better 
lighting and the absence of extraneous 
sounds common to outdoor shooting. 

Comfort between scenes? Sylvia Sidney and 
Barton MacLane seem satisfied with a high 
stool and a box on which to take relaxation 




Tests prove that 76% of all peo- 
ple over the age of 1 7 have bad 
breath ! And the same tests prove 
that most bad breath comes 
from improperly cleaned teeth. 
Colgate Dental Cream, because 
of its special penetrating foam, 
removes the cause— the decay- 

ing food deposits in hidden 
crevices between teeth which 
are the source of most bad 
breath, dull, dingy teeth, and 
much tooth decay. At the same 
time, Colgate's soft, safe polish- 
ing agent cleans and brightens 
enamel — makes teeth sparkle!

heart! The natural conquerors, persons 
of the strongest will power, are born in this 
Taurus sign. Which is why such famous 
young men as GARY COOPER, BING 
swept everything before them and gone 
straight to the top. They have more vital- 
ity than any other type so keep them busy 
and interested. 

As husbands these chaps are solid, prac- 
tical and substantial but never expect 
much in the way of compliments from 
them; they are not given to such things. 
They have an innate desire for children 
to carry on their name, for a homestead 
in which they can take root. Bing Crosby 
built a twenty-three room Colonial home- 
stead out in the North Hollywood district 
and he asserted, "I hope Dixie and I never 
have to move from here. I'd like to hang 
up my coat and stay awhile!" That's typi- 
cal of the Taurian husband. Some wives 
resent their reserve, their complete mat- 
ter-of-factness. But a wise one doesn't 
rely on it too much because sometimes a 
Taurian swings into exciting action — and 
then look out! 

Gemini Men Twins 

If you want lots of excitement, however, 
if you want to be kept on the "qui vive" 
night and day, marry a Gemini man (May 
22 to June 21)! Because you'll be mar- 
ried to twins, you see. . . . Versatile, bril- 
liant, changing from one mood to another 
so quickly that you'll begin to wonder 


Leo men, like Gene Raymond, silently try to 
make ideals become realities. Love, peace 
and harmony. They're safe on a pedestal

Impulsive, living in the world of ideas, that's 
the Aries man of which Warner Baxter is 
a good example. They resent those who argue 

which is your husband! ROBERT 
MONTGOMERY is a member of this 
House and he has all the amazing genius 
and adaptability of the sign. It's quite 
natural that Robert has a dozen hobbies to 
indulge in besides his profession — for he 
loves diversity. All Geminis do. They're 
one of the most delightful types of people 
to live with but a wife must understand 
their unexpectedness and sudden digres- 
sions. She has to fit in with their changing 
■moods, to be soothing. You cannot always 
understand a Gemini husband and don't 
try to. Leave him to work things out in 
his own way and avoid worrying him 
with petty anxieties if you want to keep 
him well and happy. A Gemini man 
seldom grows up and while he has the 
appeal of a young boy he must be treated 
with the same understanding and toler- 

The House of Cancer (June 22 to July 
23) rules family life to a great degree. So 
you can depend upon it that with a hus- 
band such as NELSON EDDY would be, 
your domestic circle would be wonder- 
fully safe. Make it as attractive as you 
can. Fill in the "homey touches." When 
Nelson does fall in love it will be enduring 
and remarkably self-sacrificing. All he 
needs is to be surrounded by loving sym- 
pathy and approval. And since all persons 
of this House are hyper-sensitive, don't 
try to direct them or dictate to them. A 
girl would find Nelson a fanciful, roman- 
tic and imaginative mate with a craving 
for change and adventure. She'd do well 
to cater to it — and not to worry about that 
craving. Because underneath the appar- 
ent restlessness is great perserverance. 

If you long for little attentions and the 
sweet nothings that mean so much in many 
a woman's life, marry a Leo gentleman

action Blue-Jay method. The pain stops instantly 
by removing the pressure, then that entire corn lifts 
out root and all in three short days (exceptionally 
stubborn cases may require a second application).

(July 24 to August 24) . . . Like WILLIAM 
TAYLOR. They're warm-hearted, gen- 
erous, and like to express their love in 
some little thoughtfulness. It's quite 
safe to put them on a small pedestal and 
to let them know you've put them there. 
These men silently and quietly try to 
make ideals realities. They understand 
the joy of living and mean to have their 
fill of it. Leo is more thorough than other 
signs and is a stickler for details. He also 
jumps at conclusions too fast and has very 
little sense of moderation! 

Feminine Wiles Taboo 

The gentlemen of Virgo (August 24 to 
September 23) are not so romantic as the 
Cancers and Leos. They are more intel- 
lectual than emotional and if their wives 
are not too temperamental, they're very 
excellent husbands. Feminine wiles do 
not interest them; genuine feminine 
sweetness does— as FREDRIC MARCH 
and FRED MAC MURRAY could vouch 
for. They're very constructive, they make 
the most of any condition they are placed 
in. But don't try to get them to change 
or break up their little habits of life! Take 
a Virgo as you find him, send him out on a 
hunting or fishing trip every now and then, 
see that such things as his pipes and ties 
remain in the same place he put them — 
and the trouble of your married life will 
be practically nil. 

Now with a member of the Libra House- 
hold (September 24 to October 23) . . . har- 
mony is the main essential. Nothing ex- 
cites or annoys them more than to have 
to give reasons for their actions; — because 
;■ Libra has to weigh everything in his own 
particular manner and can seldom explain 
it. He acts through intuition. GEORGE 
RAFT is a distinct Libra — and you'll find 
him acting on his hunches every time. 
The wives of men like George are fortu- 
nate for they make gay, social husbands — 
only see to it that Mr. Libra has wise and 
tactful guidance or he's apt to become a 
beloved vagabond! 

Very Good or Very Bad 

come under the Scorpio sign. (October 24 
to November 22) . Books could be written 
about them. Some of the greatest people 
in history have been born in this sign, but 
their natures are complicated, often para- 
doxical. Your Scorpio man is either very 
good or very bad and it usually depends 
on the woman he loves which he turns out 
to be . . .They have the grit and backbone 
to climb the heights — if they have the right 
incentive. They are the rulers of the earth 
with a tremendous capacity for work. 
They are capable of great attachment — but 
the Scorpio man doesn't say everything he 

Sagittarius (November 23 to December 
22) governs the out-and-out idealists of 
the world — of whom DOUGLAS 
FAIRBANKS, JR., is one. Yet there's a 
practical purpose behind every dream. 
Very quick-witted, they make friends 
easily and are very loyal to them. If the 
Sagittarian can find a -woman who under- 
stands him he makes a devoted and appre- 
ciative husband. The one thing he won't 
stand is petty restriction. The one thing 
that really angers him is duplicity, any- 
thing hidden and secretive. He's not as 
demonstrative as Mr. Aries, yet he has an 
expressive nature. And it's well for a 
woman to remember this: if he fails to 
hold the object of his love, it often embit- 
ters his entire life . . .

Remedy is Made at Home 

You can now make at home a better gray hair remedy 
than you can buy, by following this simple recipe: To 
half pint of water add one ounce bay rum, a small box 
of Barbo Compound and one-fourth ounce of glycerine. 
Any druggist can put this up or you can mix it yourself 
at very little cost. Apply to the hair twice a week 
until the desired shade is obtained. 

Barbo imparts color to streaked, faded 
or gray hair, makes it soft and glossy and 
takes years off your looks. 
It will not color scalp, 
is not sticky or greasy 
and does not rub off.

Zukor' s Silver 

Paramount's Silver Jubilee in honor of 
Adolph Zukor this month is being 
celebrated 'round the world. The 
celebration marks twenty-five years of 
growth of the motion picture industry 
from a Penny Arcade in Fourteenth Street, 
New York, to the present mammoth or- 
ganization of Paramount Pictures, Inc. 

It was in 1912 that Mr. Zukor brought 
the first feature length film to America — 
Sarah Bernhardt's Quee?i Elisabeth — and 
the showing of this picture in the old 
Powers Theatre in Chicago paved the way 
for subsequent films to be accepted as 
dignified entertainment. Up to this time 
the motion picture was held in contempt 
and was looked down upon by actors, by 
the public at large and particularly by 
stage producers. 

Following the success of Queen Eliza- 
beth, Famous Players Film Company was 
founded in 1913 and production started in 
a studio at 213 West 26th Street, New 
York. During the next two years its out- 
standing successes were The Prisoner of 
Zenda with James K. Hackett, and Mary 
Pickford's first picture, The Good Little 
Devil. Mary had 'worked in films prior to 
that time but she personally was unknown 
to the public, being referred to in billing 
as the Biograph girl. Famous Players was 
the first company to recognize the value 
of the star system. 

September 11, 1915 Adolph Zukor re- 
ceived a blow from fate that began as a 

Present-day film notables gather to honor Adolph Zukor on his 25th anniversary in pictures. 
Left to right in photo are — Cary Grant, Mitchell Leisen, Mrs. Barner Balaban, Lloyd Nolan, 
Stanton Griffis, Fred MacMurray, Marsha Hunt, Mr. Zukor, Bob Burns and Randolph Scott 

tragedy and ended perhaps as a comedy. 
The old studio was burned to the ground 
and in the ruins was a safe in which re- 
posed the assets of Famous Players — film. 
In those days the insurance companies 
looked upon film with great suspicion, 
therefore the film was not insured. Mr. 
Zukor and his aides waited at the scene of 
the fire all night. With daylight they were 
able to penetrate the ruins and search for 
the safe. When it was opened it was found 

that none of the film had been scorched. 
Immediately the company leased Dur- 
land's abandoned riding academy in Fifty- 
sixth Street. It remained in this eastern 
location until 1920 when the Astoria, Long 
Island Studios were built, but in the mean- 
time Mr. Zukor came to Hollywood and in 
1916 rented the Fiction Studios in Holly- 
wood and signed Mary Pickford to the 
first spectacular million-dollar-a-year 
motion picture contract. 



Be doubly careful about the laxative you take ! 

ONE of the first questions the doctor 
asks when you have a cold is — 
"Are your bowels regular?" Doctors 
know how important a laxative is in 
the treatment of colds. They know also 
the importance of choosing the right 
laxative at this time. 

Before they will give any laxative 
their approval, doctors make doubly 
sure that it measures up to their own 
specifications. Read these specifica- 
tions. They are important — not only 
during the "cold season," but all the 
year 'round. 

The doctor says that a laxative 
should be: Dependable . . . Mild . . . 
Thorough . . . Time-tested. 

The doctor says that a laxative 
should not: Over-act . . . Form a 
habit . . . Cause stomach pains . . . 
Nauseate, or upset the digestion. 

Ex-Lax meets every one of these 
demands so fairly that many doctors 

use it for their own families. And mil- 
lions of other families, too, trust it so 
completely that they have made Ex-Lax 
the most widely used laxative in the 
whole wide world. 

One trial of Ex-Lax will tell you 
why its use is so universal ... It is thor- 
ough. But it is gentle... It is effective. 
But it is mild ... It brings welcome 
relief —without stomach pains or 
nausea. That's why it's such a favorite, 
not only of the grown-ups but of the 
youngsters, too. And, just to make it 
even more pleasant, Ex-Lax tastes 
exactly like delicious chocolate. ..At 
all drug stores in 10c and 25c sizes.

been reimbursed for advance expenses. 

Rated as cne of the largest insurance 
policies ever written is that covering the 
San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridge. This 
$35,000,000 policy exhausted the insurance 
resources of American companies and 
part of the risk had to be underwritten in 
Europe. On the other hand, Boulder Dam 
was not insured. This was because it was 
a governmental project. 

In 1935 public attention was focused on 
the $5,000,000 glass casting, carried across 
the continent by special train and even- 
tually to become a 200-inch telescope 
mirror for use in a Southern California 
observatory. You may rest assured it was 
handled with the utmost care, but should 
anything happen to it during the life of 
the policy, the underwriters will have to 
write a check for $5,000,000. 

Parachutes often are insured — against 
fire and theft but not against failure to 
open. It is said the parachute manufac- 
turers will give a new chute for any that 
fail to open, if the user should need it 

Bodies of dead Chinese, outward bound 
from Los Angeles harbor to their native 
land, usually are insured. It seems that 
the relatives of a deceased Chinese do not 
get a single yen of his estate unless the 
dead man's body is buried in the land of 
his birth. To obviate any slip-up in the 
inheritance proceedings the corpse is in- 
sured against the hazards of an ocean

to the San Biego fair, he insured the lot 
of twenty-six for $10,000. They were in- 
sured separately, one pair of twins being 
valued at $1,100 and the others ranging 
from $100 to $500. 

One Southern California duck fancier 
took out insurance against his ducks laying 
eggs that would produce ducklings of an 
inferior quality. 

Almost every corner druggist has a 
policy tucked away that protects him in 
case a prescription is faultily compounded. 
The drug clerk may be an expert, but he's 
human, and humans err at times, so the 
druggist has an error eraser in the form 
of an insurance policy. 

Pachyderm Policy 

A Los Angeles collector of miniature 
elephants carries a big policy on the tiny 
pachyderms. A Beverly Hills collector 
of ink wells is similarly insured. Policies 
for large amounts almost always cover 
famed collections of paintings and other 
art. Colleen Moore's $435,000 doll house 
that took nine years to make, is protected 
by a policy. 

Wild animals in the California Zoological 
Gardens, of Los Angeles, are insured. 
Policies cover damage to the animals 
themselves from fire, flood and disease, 
and, if they get playful and start dining 
on or shredding the person of a tourist or 
resident, those things are covered, too. 

Barber poles have been insured against 
removal by pranksters who have a yen for 
them as frat house decorations. College 
rowing shells are insured against break- 
age. The University of California at Los 
Angeles not long ago collected $500 when 

a woman driver rammed a shell as it was 
being carried on a trailer. 

A considerable number of "play insur- 
ance" policies are written in Hollywood. 
These policies protect the holder from in- 
jury while playing golf, hunting, sailing 
or fishing. One of the rare kinds of policies 
written in Los Angeles covered injury to 
a coupe-chasing dog. Most cars could 
pass the pup and be totally ignored, but 

Ruth Chatterton is a venturesome individual. 
She likes aviation but rest assured she was 
"grounded" during her work on Dodsworth 

let a coupe slink over the horizon and he 
would be off in a flash. The owner thought 
that dangerous, so he took out insurance 
to make sure no coupe "bit" his dog. 

Occasional kidnaping policies are writ- 
ten but the rates are high for those who 
really might be victims. Others seldom 
need such protection. It is difficult for a 
race driver to get insurance for himself, 
but he can insure his speed chariot. Un- 
derwriters figure it is relatively easy to 
replace an accordion-pleated auto, but not 
a mangled driver. 

Radium Covered Too 

All radium in most localities is insured. 
Being extremely valuable, it comes in 
small quantities, so small in fact, that 
sometimes a patient inadvertently walks 
away with the tiny tube container, or it is 
thrown out with a cast-off bandage. When 
such things occur, the insurance under- 
writer swings into action, the California 
Institute of Technology electroscope that 
"finds" lost radium is put into use and the 
bit of valuable metal almost always is re- 

This special radium-finding "eye" pokes 
into wastebaskets; even has been known 
to have been taken to the city dump heap 
in searching for this most valuable of 
metals. In that instance the lost radium 
was recovered after having gone through 
the intense heat of the incinerator. Good 
thing radium is indestructible! 

From the foregoing you may imagine — 
and not be far wrong — that when bigger, 
better, and more novel insurance policies 
are written, Hollywood will have a hand 
in them. 

HAVEN'T you come in often 
from the crisp, cold air and felt 
your skin all dry and flaky? 

Impossible to put powder on. 
Those little flaky bits catch your 
powder in horrid little clumps. 

You can change all that — in no time at 
all. Change that flaky "feel" of your skin 
to a slipping touch under your fingers — with 
just one application! See your skin so smooth 
you can put make-up on with joy! 

How can this be? 

A dermatologist explains 

It's a special kind of cream that works this 
quick transformation. A keratolytic cream 
(Vanishing Cream). This is how a distin- 
guished dermatologist explains it: 

"A keratolytic cream has the ability to 
melt aivay dry, dead cells clinging to the sur- 
face of the skin. It does this the instant it 
touches the skin. This brings the new, young 
cells into view at once — smooth and soft."

Vanishing Cream 
can smooth away 
skin roughnesses so 
quickly. Use it two

Right after cleans-

smoothness. Powder and rouge go on softly. 
Stay for hours. 

For overnight — To give your skin lasting 
softness, apply Pond's Vanishing Cream 
after your nightly cleansing. Leave it on. 
It won't smear. As you sleep, your skin

Her Question, Our Answer 

Dear Editor: 

Is your magazine dedicated to the continuance of 
Hollywood ballyhoo, or is it going to give us the 
truth about filmland? 

I have not been a reader long enough to decide 
for myself, but at present I doubt whether a single 
magazine in America tells the whole truth about 
film favorites. 

I'm hooting at hooey — and hope it won't be at 


Madeleine Johnson, 

New York City. 

Hollywood Magazine makes every at- 
tempt to separate publicity matter and 
exaggerated untruths from the real facts 
of filmland. The editor, however, does 
not consider this license to print destruc- 
tive, detrimental material bordering on 
back-fence gossip or worse. Hollywood's 
glamour we hope to pass on to you cor- 
rectly, yet colorfully. — The Editor. 

Pretty Please, Mr. Editor 
Dear Editor: 

These arc, in part, your exact words: "Many 
more letters will have to cross the editor's desk be- 
fore he is convinced that the public as a whole now 
demands natural color photographs of men on the 
covers of HOLLYWOOD Magazines." 

On Monday last I went to a nearby drug store to 
buy a magazine (not a film publication) which I 
thought might have arrived. It hadn't. However, 
a few days later it came in and I bought the last 
one. Clark Gable graced the front cover! 

It would probably be a good idea to alternate the 
covers — having an actress' picture one month, an 
actor's the next. A few suggestions for early cover 
subjects would be, Robert Taylor, Nelson Eddy, 
Clark Gable, Errol Flynn and John Howard. 

PLEASE, Mr. Editor, don't make us wait too long 
before you are convinced that this is the right thing 
to do! It is! 

Jade Green, 
General Delivery, Vallejo, Calif. 

• • 

Dear Editor: 

I am a constant reader of your magazine and I 
think it's every bit of perfect! However, one little 
thing I might suggest. Please give us Jack Oakie, 
Fred MacMurray and other male stars on the 
HOLLYWOOD cover occasionally instead of fem- 
inine players. We girls would like to cut out these 
pictures and save them. 

I sincerely hope you will get enough demands for 
these covers so that we girls can have pictures of our 
"heart throbs." It would be thrilling! 

Zelma White, 

Wichita, Kans. 

Hollywood's editor, heeding the scores 
of requests from readers for men on its 
covers, probably will make this experi- 
ment as quickly as a popular subject can 
be photographed in natural color. By the 
circulation reports of the issue carrying 
an actor's picture, will the editor judge 
the success of the venture. Hence, news 
stand buyers will determine future pol- 
icies. — The Editor. 

Stars in Person for a Nickel? 

Dear Editor: 

In my opinion, HOLLYWOOD Magazine, with 
absolutely no exception, is TOPS! I challenge any 
of those who have sent in raps about this magazine 
to name any other film magazine which gives as 
much for one little five-cent piece! HOLLYWOOD 
is different. There is such a wealth of material,

The Truth About Rudy And Fay! 

(Continued from pase twenty-five) 

It was already taking a toll of 
her none-too-strong constitu- 
tion. Rest she must have. And 
where better than her own 
home in California could she 
have found it? 

There was but one flaw in 
their happiness. And that was 
rapidly becoming a large one — 
incompatibility. Their back- 
grounds were too dissimilar to 
make for lasting happiness. 
Rudy has always remained, at 
heart, the small town boy who 
came and conquered the na- 
tion's greatest city. His idea 
of marriage was a quiet home, 
a wife, children. Fay, on the 
other hand, had grown up in 
Hollywood, was one of the 
cinema colony's favored daugh- 

She liked excitement, lights, 
never ending gaiety. To Rudy those same 
bright lights were but part of his business 
— the business of being a radio, stage and 
screen star. That was why he'd built that 
lovely lodge in Maine. It was a retreat, 
a haven of refuge from the constant ex- 
citement of New York. 

In the early summer of 1933 they quietly 
separated and Fay returned once more to 
her home. This I know — as Rudy said at 
the time of her death — he asked her not 
once, but several times, to return to him.

s Folly!" The fourteen-room mansion Rudy built for his 
girl," in the Bel-Air section, but which never has been 
i and is now for sale. Its vacancy saddend Vallee 

But by now Fay was certain that they 
could never enjoy a happy marital life. 
Two young people, vitally alive, they had 
found that their own strong wills pulled 
them in divergent directions, to different 
destinies. And already Fay was becom- 
ing more and more subject to the attacks 
that were ultimately to cause her death. 
Back in New York Rudy plunged 
harder than ever into his work. He em- 
ployed more than fifty people, the de- 
pression was at its height and he felt that 

only his best efforts would en- 
able him to maintain his staff, 
those people who were and still 
are, entirely dependent upon 
his remaining at the top. How 
lonely he was only his friends 
know. His loneliness was 
shrouded in the steady upgrade 
of his career; the extra hours 
that he concentrated on his 
program, his recordings. It was 
his only solace; the only one 
that he knew. 

Eventually divorce papers 
were filed and the air was soon 
filled with recriminations, 
charges and counter charges. 
Both were bitter, hurt that the 
love by which they had set 
such store, had failed them. 
Even so, their intimates would 
not have been surprised at a 
reconciliation. Almost all of 
the sensational, unpleasant elements had 
been a product of too much publicity, of 
bickerings between rival attorneys. Many 
of us thought then — if Rudy and Fay were 
ever to meet each other alone — just for a 
few minutes. . . . But they were never 
to meet again. 

When Rudy came to Hollywood for his 
last picture, Sweet Music, we went one 
day to the honeymoon house he had 
bought for his bride. Located in the ex- 
clusive Bel-Air section and built at a cost

City State 

of almost a hundred thousand dollars, it 
has never been occupied. We went into 
the silent mansion. There was a huge, 
beamed ceiling room that was to have 
been the ballroom. Three little balconies 
overlooked the room. It was the sort of a 
room, the kind of a home that Fay would 

We walked through each of the fourteen 
rooms, rooms that had never been fur- 
nished in a house that would never be 
lived in. As we left Rudy lifted his hat. 
"That," he said, "is for Vallee's folly." 

I looked at him. "The house?" I asked 

He smiled a little, his face suddenly 
tired. "Not just the house, Dick. Every- 

I think that then, more than ever be- 
fore, did I realize just how much Fay 
Webb had meant to Rudy Vallee. 

From time to time you read that Rudy 
was seen here and there with dark, exotic- 
women — all of whom, if reports could be 
believed, looked like his estranged wife. 
They did. To Rudy. Fay's type of beauty 
was the ideal. But never did you hear 
of either Rudy or Fay considering another 

Father Understood 

As Fay's father heard of Rudy's remark 
when he was informed of the crisis — his 
simple. "I've always loved her!" — Chief 
Webb nodded slowly. The past was for- 
gotten now between these two men. drawn 
together by the approaching death of the 
one they both loved. Her father said then, 
"That's right. And Fay always loved him, 
too." He turned heavily back to the room 
where his daughter was waging her val- 
iant but hopeless fight against the relent- 
less scythe. Only seven months before 
Fay's mother had died. 

Even more tragic was the funeral at 
which Fay's favorite aunt was stricken 
with a heart attack and died in the very 
chapel from which Fay was being buried. 
Only his contracts had prevented Rudy's 
coming to the coast for the services. 

There is bitter irony in this love story 
of Rudy Vallee. A man whose fan mail 
from feminine admirers has totalled into 
millions of letters; one whose voice has 
been called "the most romantic of our 
times." he could find only tragedy when 
he sought love himself. There have been 
so many beautiful and intelligent women 
he has known. Yet not one of them could 
ever stir his devotion. And when he did 
fall in love. . . . 

"Wasn't in Cards" 

"I guess it just wasn't in the cards," he 
once said. "None of us can ever have 
everything he wants. But it's tough to 
lose the one thing you wanted most!" 

The day after Fay' death Rudy's air 
show was on the air as usual. But, for the 
second time in six years, Rudy was absent. 

To one who has known them both, the 
story of Fay's and Rudy's love has always 
been one that can never be completely 
analyzed. They were as dissimilar as 
night and day. They had few mutual in- 
terests or friends. There were no common 
ties between them. ■ Their one bond was 
their love. But they were meant for that 
alone and not for matrimony. Yet even 
the incompatibility that shattered their 
marriage could not completely quench 
their love. 

I think that the one thing that made Fay 
happiest in her final dark hour was when 
that young man, three thousand miles 
away said simply, "I've always loved Fay. 
I always will."

hanging by teeth, piloting 
plane or car blind-folded. In 
fact, no stunt is too compli- 
cated for Mary if she has time 
to take the precautions she 
thinks necessary. 

Perhaps one of the most 
thrilling episodes in her spec- 
tacular career was driving one 
of the locomotives that were 
put into a head-on crash for 
the Brockton, Mass., fair in the 
fall of 1933. The sponsors in- 
sisted that Mary have a regular 
engineer aboard for the start. 
The plans were rehearsed. The 
throttle was to be opened wide 
and the engine to be held by 
the air brake until the signal 
was given for the start. The 
engineer given her was so fearful he would 
not get off the locomotive in time he forgot 
his cues. He held the engine with the 
brake but forgot to open the throttle. At 
the signal he released the air and jumped, 
but the engine did not start. Mary had 
to start it herself, and she stayed aboard 
until less than an engine length separated 
the on-rushing locomotives. Then she 
jumped, but not until the sponsors added 
a few gray hairs to their heads. 

For eight years Mary did whatever 
studios asked her to do for such feminine 
film folk as Marceline Day, Madge 

Another of Mary Wiggins' light occupations Is crashing 
through board walls. Sometimes the walls are ablaze, loo! 
Mary has to pick out a few slivers after such stunts, 

Bellamy, Mary Duncan, Mildred Harris, 
Dorothy Revere, Clara Bow, Lois Moran, 
Katherine Crawford, Bebe Daniels, Norma 
Shearer, Marlene Dietrich, Eleanor 
Boardman, Lupe Velez, Barbara 
Stanwyck, Ruth Chatterton, Sally Eilers, 
and others; then in 1934 she broke her 

A Brush with Death 

Just what a stunter might expect, you 
say? Well, it so happens that Mary was 
not stunting when that happened. Back 

home in Tampa, after eight 
years of defying death, Mary 
was vacationing and went 
swimming in a river where she 
learned to swim as a kid. She 
forgot how deep the water was 
and proceeded to do a half- 
Gainor and hit bottom. At first, 
she did not know her back was 
broken. In fact, she drove from 
Tampa to Hollywood while in 
that condition and the pain be- 
came so intense she was given 
an X-ray here and it was found 
the vertebrae cracked in the 
Tampa dive had been so aggra- 
vated by the cross-country 
drive that she had to be put in 
a cast and quit work for a year. 
While Mary Wiggins has 
been hiding her abilities under the names 
of various big picture names, she has seen 
numerous girls forge from the extra ranks 
to top billing in pictures, yet she never has 
felt the urge for such prosaic professions 
as film acting. When she first did a stunt 
for Sennett, Sally Eilers and Carole 
Lombard were in the same picture as 
bathing beauties. She finds her keenest 
pleasure in doing the things others cannot 
do, or because their necks are too valuable, 
are not permitted to do. 

She'll scale and leap from crag to crag, 
or do an esthetic dance on any mountain 

a motorcycle

A Busman's Holiday 

When picture producers can't find tough 
enough jobs for the comely beauty of the 
stunting world, she takes a holiday and 
goes out to fairs and carnivals, doing her 
fire dives and crashing motorcycles 
through burning barriers by way of a 

Mary says that for those who want to 
do "something different" there is nothing 
quite like a high rating as a stunt artist 
in Hollywood. While there are several 
hundred girls who do one kind or another 
of film stunts, there are only eight who 
rise to meet any emergency, and Mary 
Wiggins is one of those eight. She's too 
modest to say if she heads that eight, but 
when one looks at her record and finds the 
wide range of thrills in which she has 
t;.ken part — unscathed — it isn't hard to 
vision her at the top of the trade. 

In one of Norma Shearer's pictures she 
was asked to do a 45-foot dive. Mary 
wanted $50. The director — maybe he was 
Scotch and thrifty — offered her a dollar a 
foot. Mary made the dive six times and 
collected about S300. which burned the 
production heads no end. They could 
have had her for $50. 

Beautiful of face and perfect of figure, 
Wiggins is not at all the type so 
often described as "athletic." She has 
none of the supposed brawn and over- 
developed muscular_ appearance. She is 
dainty, intelligent, well educated, pie.. 
of voice and eloquent in conversation ex- 
cept when she tries to tell one about the 
chances she has taken. To adopt a politi- 
cal phrase: "Let's take a look at the 
record," it would seem there is nothing of 
which Tampa's Mary Wiggins is afraid. 
and yet there is iust one thing — A MOUSE! 

Film Styles Pace 

Will Hollywood usurp the fashion 
throne shared by Paris and New 
York? The answer to that question 
is found in the selection by the 
Associated Apparel Manufacturers 
of Sally Martin, fashion editor of 
Fawcett Publications, Inc., to choose 
from among famed film studio de- 
signers creations to highlight the 
association's spring style show at the 
Los Angeles Biltmore in mid-Jan- 

Heretofore only clothes created by 
wholesale designers have been given 
display at the style functions, but this 
year's show, sponsored by Fawcett 
magazines, sets a new vogue. Miss 
Martin, long recognized as an expert 
stylist, both in America and Europe, 
contends Hollywood is the logical 
style center of the world. The film 
studios have imported the world's 
outstanding stylists and now the 
fashions they design for film lumi- 
naries promise to become a more 
definite influence on trends in mil- 
ady's garb.

Hamm Beall listens intently while Harold Lloyd 
tells one of his newest gags to the tricky- 
togged telephone temptress at the Troc 

asked her to serve as his personal conceit 
mentor, and tell him whenever she no- 
ticed his cranium was beginning to expand. 

Things I'm looking forward to during 1937: 

A lot of swell musicals done in ultra- 
moderne style. 

Revival of some of the great old dramas 

Re-mnke of more of the successful epics 
of the silent days. 

Plenty of fast moving sophisticated 
comedies with daring dialogue yet with 
good old belly laughs that are belly laughs 
in anybody's language. 

Walter Disney's first full length feature 
Snow White and the Seven Dwarjs. 

Things I'm positively dreading for 1937: 

Continuance of the double bill menace. 

Newsreels with the same old unveiling 
of town pumps, daisy chains at Vassar or 
wherever the female chain gang operates, 
politicians being made Indian princesses, 
princes and what have you? 

Importation of more foreign stars who 
will flop badly after a tremendous Ameri- 
can build up. 

Comedies that are not to be laughed at. 

Bigger and better income taxes.

For Picture Work," Helen continued, 
"it is necessary for the players to have 
long bobs so that their hair can be ar- 
ranged in a variety of styles. Occasionally 
one of the stars vacationing abroad will 
have her hair cut short because it happens 
to be the vogue in Paris or London. But 
she pays the penalty when she gets back 
to Hollywood by having to wear false hair

Helen pointed out that the neck can also 
be made to appear shorter or longer by 
the cut of one's dress. For this object 
lesson, Miss Perry obligingly posed in two 
gowns of contrasting necklines while 
wearing the same coiffure. The horizontal 
neckline of the dinner dress with high 
cowl front, shown in the smaller photos, 
shortens the neck; while the drop shoulder 
decolletage of the evening gown appears 
to lengthen the neck. Because her throat 
is naturally slender, Miss Perry breaks

The liver should pour out two pounds of liquid 
bile into your bowels daily. If this bile is not 
flowing freely, your food doesn't digest. It just 
decays in the bowels. Gas bloats up your stomach. 
You get constipated. Your whole system is poi- 
soned and you feel sour, sunk and the world 
looks punk. 

Laxatives are only makeshifts. A mere bowel 
movement doesn't get at the cause. It takes those 
pood, old Carter's Little Liver Pills to get these 
two pounds of bile flowing freely and make you 
feel "up and up." Harmless, gentle, yet amazing 
in making bile flow freely. Ask for Carter's Little 
Liver Pills by name. Stubbornly refuse anything

worn at the shoulder will do the same 
trick for you. 

The next time you complain about the 
necessity of having your hair washed once 
a week, remember that the stars submit 
to a shampoo every morning! 

Irene Dunne was one player who re- 
neged at this routine — but only for a while. 
Once Helen had coaxed her into trying 
the daily sudsing before her hair was 
dressed. Miss Dunne was delighted with 
the new beauty of her hair and its screened 

In Brushing The hair of 
charges, Helen, like all fine 
isn't deterred by a fresh wave

said, "I brush out

re-do the waves and curls with a tail 
comb. This brushing leaves the hair soft 
and lustrous and removes entirely the 'set' 
look of a new wave." 

A tail comb, in case you are not familiar 
with the name, is the comb with long, 
pointed handle at one end used by pro- 
fessional hairdressers in making finger 
curls. The hair is swirled around the 
finger with the handle or "tail" of the 
comb and then slipped intact from the 

So great is the interest in hair ornaments 
that no girl dares show her head in the 
evening any more without a flower or clip 
decorating her topknot. And now, if you 
follow the style introduced by Grace 
Moore, you'll soon be wearing a bird in 
your hair! 

Miss Moore, who recently returned from 
Europe to resume work at Columbia 
Studios, brought with her a collection of 
tiny, feathered birds of various hues. 
They are worn singly, perched in her hair, 
and selected to match her gown of the 

Marian Marsh favors the new flower 
ornaments made of bright colored cello- 
phane. They have a fragile, crystal-like 
appearance but Marian says they are 
amazingly durable. 

Styling Your Hair to the current pom- 
padour trend will be ever so much 
simpler if you have a good permanent 
wave to start with. Even hair that has 
a natural tendency to curl perks up in 
appearance with a permanent in the ends. 
The added strength is needed for the new 
upsweeping headlines. 

Unfortunately, many girls have little 
knowledge about the various types of per- 
manent waving methods. Too often they 
fail to specify a brand name and simply 
trust to luck that the one selected by the 
operator will result in lustrous waves — 
minus the harsh, brittle ends caused by 
inferior waving solutions. When you get 
your next permanent, be sure to ask for 
a nationally known systam as a guarantee 
of dependable results. 


Accept No Substitutes! Always Insist on the Advertised Brand! 

To protect their patrons against substi- 
tution, the Duart Manufacturing Company 
packages its permanent wave pads in in- 
dividually sealed cartons. And when you 
ask for a Duart, you know that's what 
you're getting when you see the operator 
break the red-starred seal of the package. 
The Duart Permanent Wave, you'll be in- 
terested to know, is endorsed by the 
Motion Picture Hairstylists Guild. 

The new Accent Castile Shampoo put 
out by the Huntington Laboratories is a 
find for girls who appreciate the benefits 
of pure olive oil to hair and scalp. Accent 
has an unusually high percentage volume 
of this cherished content to make your 
hair shimmer with new life and health. 
Dry hair especially will respond grate- 
fully to its beneficial oils. A six ounce 
bottle, enough for six or eight shampoos, 
costs 50 cents. 

If You Hesitate to wash your own hair 
because you don't have sufficient 
strength in your fingers to massage your 
scalp thoroughly, then you'll be pleased 
to know about the Kent Massage-Shampoo 
Brush, designed for just such limp- 
fingered gals as yourself. This little brush 
has a slightly domed back with knob on 
the top to fit securely in your palm and 
provide a good grip even when your hands 
are covered with suds. The resilient 
bristles exercise and stimulate the scalp 
while loosening dust particles and dead 
cuticle — and are equally effective for a 
dry massage as for a shampoo. The brush 
is a gem of competency at $2. 

Just when it seemed that every method 
of manufacturing ringlets had been 
thought of, along comes a clever new de- 
vice for making the hair go 'round and 
'round and come out a curl. It's called the 
Pro-Curler and looks like a toy shotgun 
— with every shot a curl! There is a clamp 
on the side of the curler which holds the 
end of the hair while it is rolled up to the 
head and secured by a bobby pin, pre- 
viously inserted at one end. The curler 
is then withdrawn and you go on to the 
next strand of hair. Since the bobby pin 
is invisible when the curl is pinned to the 
head, you will be presentable enough even 
while the curls are drying, to meet your 
best beau. With two packs of bob pins 
the Pro-Curler is priced at $1. 

Ruling the waves is an easy matter if 
you put your hair to bed in a Dona-Cap. 
You may toss and turn but your wave will 
lie docilely undisturbed in its snugly 
fitting protector. There are ever so many 
style Dona-Caps from which to choose — 
chin bands with snaps, chin ties and 
turban models — that you are sure to find 
one entirely comfortable. And then you 
can go to sleep with the blissful thought 
that in the morning your center part will 
still be a center part and that your bias 
wave will still be a bias wave! Dona- 
Caps, which are made of net, are priced 
at 25 cents and 50 cents.

For Real Beauty — 
You Must Have Soft 

Alluring- Skin 
. « Free Front Pimples 

SMOOTH, satiny skin— a radiantly 
clear, youthful complexion — men 
admire them and modern style demands 

To be truly lovely, you must rid your 
skin of ugly pimples on face and body. 
And thousands are doing it, with com- 
plete success. 

The real cause of disorders resulting 
in ugly pimples may be nothing in the 
world except a lack of the j'east vitamins 
B and G. When these elements are not 
present in the human diet in sufficient 
quantities, the intestinal tract becomes 
weak and sluggish. Its function is badly 
impaired. Constipation is likely to ensue 
and this, in turn, often shows up in 
pimply skin. 

Countless men and women have found 
that in such cases, Yeast Foam Tablets 
work wonders. This pure dry yeast sup- 
plies vitamins B and G in abundant 
quantities and thus tends to restore the 
intestinal tract to normal — in those in- 


stances of vitamin deficiency. With the 
intestinal tract again in healthy function, 
pimples should quickly disappear. 


Vitamin B, known as the anti-neuritic 
vitamin, is absolutely necessary to soimd, 
steady nerves. Lack of enough vitamin B 
causes polyneuritis — the inflammation 
of many nerves. Yeast Foam Tablets, so 
rich in the B factor, prevent and correct 
nervous conditions caused by vitamin B 

Unlike ordinary yeast, Yeast Foam Tablets 
are pasteurized and hence cannot cause gas or 
fermentation. They are easy to swallow and 
most people relish their 
clean, nut-like taste. They 
keep, too. Start now. Try 
Yeast Foam Tablets and 
give them the chance to give 
you the same welcome relief 
they have brought to so 
many others.

Like all other small communities, it is 
very proud of its high school. Out in front 
of the school there is a statue which 
represents the Physical, the Mental and 
the Spiritual. The sculptor had an easy 
time finding an athlete to pose for the 
Physical. He found someone who could 
pose for the Mental, but finding a model 
for the Spiritual was a task. Myrna 
Williams, for the first time in her life, 
stepped out to help herself. She readily 
understood the honor and distinction of 
being chosen as the ideal Spiritual type. 
And when this demure little high school 
girl stood before him, the great man who 
was shaping the model for the statue knew 
that here was his ideal. 

But Myrna imposed one condition. And 
a strange one it was, considering that she 
realized the honor of her selection. She 
demanded that if she posed, her true 
identity be kept secret! 

That was the beginning of a strange 
policy which Myrna has always pursued. 
She doesn't mind being talked about, pro- 
fessionally, that is, but she is loathe to talk 
about herself. Quite a contrast from many 
other queens of the screen! 

In high school, the little girl from Mon- 
tana was principally interested in the arts. 
Somewhere, among the old class files, 
there can still be found those early draw- 
ings, those early mouldings. And the 
music rooms must still echo the tunes of 
the piano as she diligently practiced. 

After Venice High School, there were 
the days in the Westlake School for 
Girls, a fashionable institution patronized 
largely by society families. Then Myrna 
Williams stepped out to face the world. 
Always adept at dancing, she now 
realized, for the first time, that mere wish- 
ing would not break down the walls be- 
tween desire and accomplishment. If 
Myrna were to be a dancer, she wanted 
to be a great one. So she sought out Ruth 
St. Denis, one of the great dancers of the 
times and who was then conducting 
classes at her school in Los Angeles. The 
price came high, but the results were what 
Myrna wanted. After an hour's lesson, 
she would practice by the day to get full 
value out of it. 

Dances in Prologue 

In those days. Hollywood was just be- 
coming the city of glamour that it now is. 
Sid Grauman, the great showman, had 
only recently left the downtown area of 
Los Angeles and opened Grauman's 
Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. Now a 
second run house, it is only a reminder 
of the days when it was the best, and be- 
cause of its exotic Egyptian setting, some- 
thing of a sensation and a mecca for 
tourists. It was really the beginning of 
the glamorous Hollywood which is now 
known around the world. 

Sid Grauman had at that time intro- 
duced the prologue, something entirely 
new in the motion picture theatre. It con- 
sisted of an elaborately staged show that 
tied into the theme of the picture being 
shown. Dancers were used in liberal 

When she considered herself sufficiently 
trained, Myrna Williams went to the 
theatre, rapped on the stage door and 
landed a job in the chorus. It was a tough 
job as jobs go. Grauman is a severe task 
master. When a chorus dances for 
Grauman, it dances to perfection. That is

Myrna Loy's transition from a dancing girl 
in a Sid Srauman prologue to the feminine 
star of Alter the Thin Man, is a gap such 
as very few of her sex ever have bridged 

how he became the Ziegfeld of the wes». 

Myrna's particular type of beauty had 
attracted the attention of Henry Waxman, 
a famed photographer. He photographed 
her many times and then introduced her to 
Natacha Rambova, the wife of Rudolph 
Valentino. Myrna Williams knew this was 
the opportunity she had long awaited. 
And Natacha Rambova saw in the little 
dancing girl from Grauman's Egyptian 
theatre chorus that spark of greatness that 
would later flower into stardom and in- 
trigue audiences the world over. 

If Myrna Williams was anxious for a 
chance at the movies, Natacha Rambova 
was more anxious to help her get that 
chance. She saw to it that Myrna was 
given a big part in What Price Beauty. 

That picture, as many will remember, 
was a great failure, so pronounced that it 
is still talked about within the studios. 
But it was Myrna Williams' long-awaited, 
long-planned start. And she made the 
best of it. If the picture was a failure, 
Myrna wasn't. Other studios heard about 
her and her exotic charm. They wanted 
her for their pictures. Almost over night, 
she was in demand. 

In Exotic Roles 

She was always given an oriental, or 
exotic part. She was Chinese, Javanese, 
Japanese, Hindu, Gypsy and Egyptian in 
one picture after the other. That was all 
right at the start. She changed her name 
from Williams to Loy and affected long 
lashes, slanting eyebrows. Every move- 
ment of her body had that sensitive swing. 
Her clothes had a touch of the mysterious 
Far East. It was rumored that she was a 






MODERN women no longer give-in 
to periodic pain.. It's old-fashioned to 
suffer in silence, because there is now 
a reliable remedy for such suffering. 

Some women who have always had 
the hardest time are relieved by Midol. 

Many who use Midol do not feel one 
twinge of pain, or even a moment's 
discomfort during the entire period. 

Don't let the calendar regulate your 
activities! Don't "favor yourself" or 
"save yourself" certain days of every 

month! Keep going, and keep comfort- 
able — with the aid of Midol. These 
tablets provide a proven means for 
the relief of such pain, so why endure 
suffering Midol might spare you? 

Midol's relief is so swift, you may 
think it is a narcotic. It's not. And its 
relief is prolonged ; two tablets see you 
through your worst day. 

You can get Midol in a trim little 
aluminum case at any drug store. Then 
you may enjoy a new freedom!

the half-caste. They kept putting her off, 
dodging the issue. Myrna Loy wouldn't 
let them dodge it. She was determined. 

Concentrated on Career 

And what about her private life? Early 
in the struggle, Myrna Loy realized that it 
would be a hard enough struggle if she 
concentrated on her career. She realized 
that love affairs would be an encum- 
brance. Being more of an artistically 
minded person, she didn't mind missing 
the night life of Hollywood. In books, at 
the piano, on the tennis court or the bridle 
paths, she found her relaxation. Once, 
early in her career, her name was linked 
with that of Barry Norton. Pursuing her 
tight-lipped policy, she didn't bother 
making denials. The rumors died a natural 
death. Then, when she made The 
Barbarian, it was reported she might 
marry Ramon Novarro, who shared star 
honors with her. 

Then when she reached the top, right 
after her success in The Thin Man, she 
met the man she could love. And, having 
attained her professional goal, having 
made her mark in life, she let loose the 
emotional strings. The marriage was 
something of an elopement, but it wasn't 
a surprise to Hollywood. She had known 
Arthur Hornblow, Jr., for three years and 
for a year before that eventful trip to 
Ensenada, Mexico, their friends had 
known, cf their deep interest in one 

It would seem that just as she carved 
and moulded her highly successful profes- 
sional career, Myrna Loy has also guided 
her private life to the ultimately happy 
and lasting goal — that of contented home 
and family life.

Caused by Tired Kidneys 

Many of those gnawing, nagging, painful backaches 
people blame on colds or strains are often caused by 
tired kidneys — and may be relieved when treated 
in the right way. 

The kidneys are Nature's chief way of taking ex- 
cess acids and poisonous waste out of the blood. Most 
people pass about 3 pints a day or about 3 pounds 
of waste. 

If the 15 miles of kidney tubes and filters don't 
work well, poisonous waste matter stays in the blood. 
These poisons may start nagging backaches, rheu- 
matic pains, lumbago, leg pains, loss of pep and en- 
ergy, getting up nights, swelling, puffiness tinder the 
eyes, headaches and dizziness. 

Don't wait! Ask your druggist for Doan's Pills, 
used successfully by millions for over 40 years. They 
give happy relief and will help the 15 miles of kidney 
tubes flush out poisonous waste from the blood.

WHO is the most glamorous woman in Hollywood? 
I have had some letters recently asking me that ques- 
tion — not who is the most glamorous woman on the 
screen — but in real life, before the camera. 

That's asking a lot. Glamojr is not a static quality. A 
woman's personality changes with her roles if she is a good 
actress. Take Barbara Stanwyck, for instance. I have seen 
her at times before the camera when she seemed the most 
glamorous thing on earth. Then again, I have seen her 
when glamour is not supposed to be in her make-up. She 
fills the bill admirably in either case. 

At M-G-M the other day Joan Crawford was doing a 
scene for "The Last of Mrs. Cheney." As usual she had 
her phonograph pouring forth music to create a mood. Joan 
was dressed in fluffy black formal. A fashion expert wouldn't 
describe it that way, 
but it doesn't matter. 
She had a half hour of 
rest before the cameras 
would be ready. So 
Joan strolled among 
the people on the set 
with a friendly smile, 
and displayed sheer 
glamour if I ever saw 
it radiating from a 
woman! Just then I 
would probably have 
nominated her. But 
glamour is such a 
changing thing. . . . 

Jean Harlow has 
plenty of it. So does 
Claudette Colbert, yet 
of a different sort. 
Katharine Hepburn has 
never seemed glamor- 
ous to me. She strikes 
me more as a capable 
actress who doesn't 
want to project glam- 
our or anything else 

to the public. And as an actress she qualifies for her place 
in the sun. 

Over at 20th Century-Fox I caught wind of an amusing 
situation. They were getting ready for the world premiere 
of "Lloyds of London." Nearly every one of importance 
in Hollywood was invited to be present. 

Someone thought it would be a good idea for Freddie 
Bartholomew to escort a certain young actress (not Shirley 
Temple) to the affair. From a publicity point of view this 
would have been excellent promotion material. The rumor 
is that Freddie's aunt approved the stunt and so did the 
little girl's adult guardians. The newspapermen were about 
to announce triumphantly this little stunt just as Freddie was 
finally consulted. 

"What, go with her?" he exclaimed suddenly. "I am 
dreadfully sorry, but I am afraid it can't be arranged. You 
see, I wouldn't think of going anywhere with her. And that 
is final." 

This, from a precocious young actor who leans to the 

Freddie Bartholomew waves to ad- 
mirers lining the star-studded path 
to the premiere of Lloyds of London. 
His aunt and mentor, Miss Millycent 
Bartholomew is shown with him 

gentlemanly side under most circumstances, constituted an 
overwhelming defeat for the proponents of the idea. 

Freddie showed up at the premiere (Carthay Circle theatre) 
with his -aunt and other oldsters. He sat in the first row 
balcony, and was a little gentleman as usual. He seemed 
totally uninterested in his own role, but exclaimed over the 
remainder of the picture. 

OuWde the theatre more than thirty huge spotlights flared 
across the night skies, luring thousands of curious people 
to the scene. The streets looked like a football field with 
bleachers lining the curbs. It was quite something. . . . 

Our next scene is the Cocoanut Grove, where genial Jan 

Garber is presiding 
with his swell dance 
band. A bunch of foot- 
ball players from Texas 
A. & M. were having 
the time of their lives 
taking in the sights. 

Over at one table 
was Anne Shirley and 
Hollywood's actress- 
columnist, Phyllis Fraser, 
with their escorts. The 
gridiron heroes asked 
the girls to dance. 
When they complied, 
the Lone Star state 
boys were thrilled no 

Several times they 
approached Anna 
Sten's table and asked 
for dances, but she re- 
fused them graciously. 
Still they persisted, un- 
daunted by the fact 
that she was dancing 
not at all during the 

evening. Finally, toward midnight, she gave in. 

"All right," she replied, "I'll dance with you. But wait 

until I put on my shoes." 

This may be Hollywood, but dogs will bark here just as 

well as in your home town! 

I suspect that Ginger Rogers was just a little rueful over 
those romance rumors linking her with Bob Taylor. You 
needn't believe them, for here is what happened. 

One Sunday afternoon Ginger was invited to be an extra 
guest at a night club that evening with a party of six couples. 
Taylor was invited quite without premeditation, and he came 
alone because Barbara Stanwyck was out of town. 

Ginger and Bob met for the first time at the Troc, visited 
casually and danced during the evening. Came the dawn 
and the columnists had them romancing together! 

Of course Ginger must have been embarrassed. She and 
Barbara work at the same studio and are good friends. But 
what could she do about it? Not a thing, except to find 
consolation in a clear conscience. 

—Ted Magee, Editor. 

Anne Shirley and her escort, Joe 
Rivltin, seem to have their interest 
focused on something besides dancing

Peeking At Picture Folk 

One Might Conclude that the Caliban- 
Ariel romance is true love, measured by 
that "never-runs-smoothly" yardstick. 
John Barrymore and Elaine divide head- 
lines between heart throbs and discord . . . 
Carole Lombard, rated Hollywood's best- 
dressed, no more than had that title than 
she was cast as a second-rate cabaret en- 
tertainer by Paramount in Swing High, 
Swing Low . . . Bette Davis finds her re- 
turn to the Warner fold fraught with sev- 
eral exciting "low-lady" roles that promise 
to make her Female Menace No. 1 . . . 
Martha Raye says things are happening 
too fast for her in 1937. First she lost 
sixteen pounds, then she announced her 
engagement to Jerry Hopper, Paramount 
music department worker, thirdly she be- 
came an aunt when the wife of her 
eighteen-year-old brother, Buddy, gave 
birth to a baby ... Oh boy! . . . RKO is 
angling to bring real romance into reel 
prominence when Barbara Stanwyck 
starts making A Love Like That. Yes, 
you're right, Robert Taylor is sought to 
play opposite Barbara . . . The young 
sailor who tried to extort $5,000 from 
Ginger Rogers under threat of death, drew 
a five-year sentence in San Quentin . . . 
Some folks in the little Northern Cali- 
fornia town of Shasta City seem to re- 
member a girl who once lived in their 
midst as "the spittin' image" of Simone 
Simon. Of course, the girl they knew 
didn't have a French accent. Most of 
them would be willing to bet a few shekels 
the girl they knew and Simone are la 
meme chose. 

Filipinos Favor Blondes

Blonde Film Actresses are favored in 
the Philippines. Such is the word brought 
to Hollywood by Dr. Hilaro Camino 
Moncade, who, during the crusade for 
Philippine independence, spent many 
years in America. He says Jean Harlow, 
Ginger Rogers and Carole Lombard are 
tops with cinema fans in the insular 

commonwealth. Hollywood studios feted

Early Studios Relive 


Once Again The studios where D. W. 
Griffith made his first great picture, The 
Birth of a Nation, is to take a commanding 
position in Hollywood's picture activities. 
The old Majestic-Reliance plant, also 
known as the Fine Arts Studios, and more 
lately as the Talisman Studios, now has 
come under the control of Maurice 
Gebber, financed by English capital. He 
is reconstructing the plant into an ultra- 
modern production center for rental film 
producers. The Gish sisters, Mae Marsh, 
Bessie Love and a host of others climbed 
to fame at the old Sunset and Virgil loca- 
tion. Gebber was the originator of Screen 
Snapshots and was Valentino's first 

Good Dialectician 

Fay Wray is a dialectician par excel- 
lence. She has the voices and manner of 
speech of each one in her household down 
so that when folks phone she may answer 
in the voice of the maid, secretary, or 
baby's nurse. When Fay's sense of humor 
gets the best of her, the little knack can 
become most confusing to callers. She 
confides, however, that it's a "defense" 
accomplishment for her own inability to 
recognize voices over the phone.

(Director of "Cavalcade"", "The Sea Haw}(\ 
"Mutiny on the Bounty") 

.Naturally, ever since "Mutiny on 
the Bounty" swept the country, I've 
been on the lookout for another yarn 
with the same sweep and power to bring 
to the screen. I wanted a story with 
plenty of drama and with plenty of 
chance for me to direct big out of doors, 
scenes, the kind I get the most kick out of, 
» Well, to make a long story short, I 
found just such a yarn . . ."Maid of 
Salem". Here is the story of a young girl 
and a young lad who have the nerve to 
fight off a whole town of fanatics who 
try to break up their love ... a story 
with the same drive and surge of 
"Mutiny". For here love and courage 
face the fanatic venom of a whole mob 
of Captain Blighs. 

» But finding a story is only half a di- 
rector's battle. The next thing was to 
find stars able to play the parts. I had 
recently directed Claudette Colbert in 
"Under Two Flags" and knew what she 
could do in a highly emotional part. 
Fortunately, I was able to cast her as the 

stout-hearted little "Maid of Salem". A 
hero? I needed a swashbuckling, hard- 
boiled lad who could carve his way with 
a cutlass through an armed mob, with a 
grin on his face ... I found him. Fred 
MacMurray, I honestly believe, does as 
fine a job in this picture as any of the 
heroes of my big adventure pictures. The 
girls are going to say it's Fred's swellest 

» Last but not least a producer-director 
has j;ot to have freedom to make a pic- 
ture his own way. I, personally, want 
my pictures absolutely authentic. If it's 
an historical picture, I want my history 
correct. Well, let me say, right here and 
now, Paramount has made this, my first 
picture for their company, the easiest I 
have ever worked on. For they have told 
me to spare no expense to make "Maid 
of Salem" the most authentic, the most 
powerful of my productions. So I think 
when you see "Maid of Salem" you will 
agree with me that it tops them all for 
sheer entertainment.

La Bennett's Plans 

Constance Bennett closed her beauti- 
ful white Holmby Hills house and flew to 
New York for an indefinite stay. Whis- 
perers say when she returns to Hollywood 
her plans to step into the exclusive ranks 
as a woman motion picture producer, will 
have been completed. 

Nervy Hitch-Hiker 

Brian Donlevy reports the nerviest 
hitch-hiker on record. Donlevy picked 
the lad up on Beverly Boulevard and 
immediately was asked if he had time to 
turn around and take him three miles in 
the opposite direction. When Brian asked, 
"If that's the idea, why weren't you 
standing on the other side of the street?" 
the kid piped, " 'Cause there weren't so 
many cars going in that direction, mister." 

Another Shows Nerve 

Donald Woods deserves our sympathy 
for the month's nerviest "caller." A lad 
arrived at his house late on an afternoon, 
knocked at the back door, told the cook 
he was Don's cousin from Wisconsin, and 
with neither Mrs. Woods or Don at home 
to verify it, the cook asked him in. No 
sooner had she done so than the front 
doorbell rang and she left the kitchen to 
answer it. When she returned a few 
moments later, the caller had packed a 
lunch and "vamoosed" — notably with a 
chicken from the refrigerator, a loaf of 

bread and pie from the pantry and, to top 
it all, three pairs of Don's socks from the 

Mae's High Salary 

Something Of a High in the matter of 
wages was recorded recently by none 
other than Mae West. 

Miss West received $300,000 flat for her 
starring role in Go West, Young Man, and 
the picture was in production exactly 42 
days. That means well over $7,000 per 
day and you can figure out, on an eight- 
hour day basis, what it netted per hour, 
per minute, per second. 

A generous slice of that money will go 
to Uncle Sam. 

Now Marlene Dietrich is demanding 
$300,000 a picture, but Mae got hers. No 
decision on Dietrich. 

"Doug" vs. Marlene 

London Cinema Writeks indulge in a 
jolly bit of chatter once in a while and 
latterly they have been cooking up a 
romance between Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., 
and Marlene Dietrich, solely, it seems, 
because Doug, Jr., has been squiring her 
to first nights and clubs. 

What they forgot to mention was that 
Rudolph Sieber, Marlene's husband, was 
always a third in the party. 

However, Marlene is returning to this 
country to do her chores at Paramount, 
and simultaneously, it was printed that 
Doug, Jr., was coming back to America. 

Obviously the press assumed that he 
was following Marlene. 

Truth is that Doug, Jr., has intended, 

for a long time, to make a picture or two 

in Hollywood. Further, and for the last 

time, let it be written that Marlene

She Wins Taylor Prize 

Dear Editor: 

Things that are beginning to bore me in pictures: 

1. A Rogers-Astaire picture with the same iden- 
tical plot, and almost the same cast. Their first pic- 
tures were delightful, and I saw some of them the 
second time, but after all. one likes to see a different 
story occasionally, even if their dancing is marvelous. 
Frankly, their last picture was quite disappointing. 

2. Why can't some of our stars leave off this 
"awsk" and "cawn't" business? For instance, Binnie 
Barnes doesn't seem quite the type to broaden her 
A's so promiscuously. 

3. Rochelle Hudson is very sweet and lovely, 
but must she open her mouth in that twisting way 
she has, to express deep emotion? 

4. Valiant is the Word for Carrie was superb! 
If only Wesley Ruggles had endeavored to put a 
little feeling into the acting of his attractive young 
erstwhile wife. Even in the most emotional scenes, 
she portrayed no more feeling than I would have 
in selecting a pair of hose. 

5. Stuart Erwin was perfect in his role in 
Pigskin Parade. Incidentally, I enjoyed that homely 
small town picture, more than any I have seen 
lately, and I see plenty of them, but there is no 
reason for putting him in anything quite so stupid 
and boresome as the All American Chump. That 
name would be much more fitting to some of the 
Hollywood executives, who persist in putting out 
such abominable pictures. Surely, they can find 
better stories than that. 

6. Another thing that continues to be a source 
of amazement to me is why these same producers 
insist on putting a young, attractive boy like Robert 
Taylor, opposite a leading lady who is from five to 
fifteen years older than he. Robert Taylor per- 
sonifies our clean, attractive American youth. Why 
then should he be given a role that is years too 
mature, and one which only an experienced, 
seasoned actor could put over? If he can hold his 
own opposite Garbo, who is much older, and who 
has been years in the business of acting, he can 
play any part. 

7. What I should like to see, is Robert Taylor 
teamed with lovely Virginia Bruce in a real love 
story. Not one of these light, frothy millionaire 
comedies, but depicting the troubles and happiness 
of a married or single couple. 

Mrs. W. D. Holden, 
14th and State Sts., Bellingham, Wash.

Plea for Happy Ending 
Dear Editor: 

Personally, I'm all for the happy endings for 
pictures. Yes, I know — I'll probably be deluged 
with protests and arguments in re: Art, realism, 
et cetera — but when I (and a couple of million 
others) go to the movies, I go for relaxation and 
enjoyment. And I can't say that I get either when 
I leave the theatre feeling sorry for the hero or 
heroine, or suspended in mid-air when the story 
suddenly ends, and all you can do is wonder if it 
will turn out all right. There seems to be a ten- 
dency toward the latter recently, as witness Imitation 
of Life, Anthony Adverse, Craig's Wife and dozens 
of others. 

For this reason, I enjoy pictures like Theodora 
Goes Wild, Libeled Lady and the like. Who cares 
if they're not artistic masterpieces? Them as wants 
can have, but I'll take happiness every time! 
Mrs. H. McClendon, 
110 Cornell, Albuquerque, N. Mex. 

Just what fans in general think about 
unhappy endings should find expression 
during the coming year because several 
major productions will show film favorites 
cut down by the Grim Reaper. — The

Battered Bugle Appeals 

Dear Editor: 

Fade-out shots have long followed conventional 
lines, and a lot of good movies have failed to leave 
a favorable impression due to the last few sequences. 

I, for one, will never forget the last shot in The 
Road to Glory. Just a battered bugle laying in the 
mud, but it was so very effective and touching, that 
it stole the show from three great stars. 

Lloyd Byers, 
Columbia Hotel, Moorhead, Minn. 

What Price Beauty? 

Dear Editor: 

Each time I go near a beauty parlor and see the 
many young women engaged in making Mrs. Jones 
more attractive to her husband, and Miss Brown 
more appealing to her fiance, I wonder if these busy 
young ladies ever stop to think that they owe their 
jobs to the Joan Crawfords, Jean Harlows and 
Norma Shearers of the screen. How many women 
do not come out from a Crawford picture conscious 
that they need a new permanent, or a manicure?

Margot Grahame, glamorous Britisher under contract to RKO Studios, is one of screen-

Olivia de Havilland is the first of the 
younger stars to adopt the Joan of 
Arc coiffure, which is the newest 
trend predicted by Hollywood hairstylists. 
The hair is worn in a long bob, either 
straight or in loose waves, and turned 
under at the ends in a single smooth roll. 
The hairdress is equally good with or 
without bangs, depending on the shape of 
the face. 

• Irene Dunne, when she takes her end- 
of-the-day tub, covers her face with 
cream because she finds the steam opens 
the pores and permits the cream to pene- 
trate. There is a supply of tissues handy 
to remove excess cream while bathing. 
Irene is also enthusiastic about the wash 
cloths made like mitts which French 
women use. A supply to fit your own hands 
can easily be made of soft terry-cloth. 

• Constance Bennett says her tapering 
fingertips are the result of a daily 
massage in warm oil. The oil softens the 
cuticle, and while in this pliable state, the 
fingertips can be coaxed into slenderness 
by stroking lengthwise at the sides of the 

• Presto chango! From coral to rust and 
then to vermilion and wine reds is the 
morning-to-dusk color scheme for finger- 

nails of the cinema stars who cleverly tint 
their nails to complement their costumes. 
These lightning changes of nail polish 
require a safe and reliable polish remover 
to keep the nails in perfect condition (it's 
not polish but harsh acetone removers that 
cause dry, brittle nails) . A non-drying 
polish remover containing beneficial oils 
is now offered as a companion to the oily 
cuticle remover of a famous manufacturer. 
The oils of these mild-mannered prepara- 
tions nourish the cuticle and nails and 
keep them smooth and healthy no matter 
how frequently the nails are redone. The 
price is 35 cents each. Want the name? 

• Joan Crawford has discarded all her 
pumps and slippers and now wears only

One of those intimate little affairs for which Hollywood is famous was the party given by 
Gene Raymond for his best girl — Jeanet+e MacDonald. Of the 300 or more who attended, 
here is an eating group — Fredric March, Glenda Farrell, James Stewart and Anita Louise. 
The latter two met for the' first time at this party and now they are meeting often 

Hollywood another embarrassing 
moment to add to our ever growing 
list. During the filming of That Girl From 
Paris, Vin, the director, and the prop boy 
were sitting around talking while the 
cameras were lining up for the next scene 
when one of them noticed an attractive 
girl entering the stage, and commented on 
it. They all looked at her, agreed she was 
very pretty, and resumed their conversa- 
tion only to be interrupted by the girl 
asking Vin if she could speak to him for 
a moment. 

He said, "Certainly!" and excused him- 
self. As they walked away the girl asked, 
"do you remember me?" "Well," VLn 
admitted, "your face does seem familiar, 
but I can't recall your name." "It's 
Florence Haworth," she said, "and I'm 
your ex-wife." To say that Vin was very 
embarrassed is putting it mildly! 

The Andy Devine's are expecting an- 
other bit of Devineness at their home . . . 
Eleanor Whitney was in the middle of a 
cafe fight recently and had to be carried 
out because she got hysterical . . . Paula 
Stone is busy shopping for baby pens . . .

gave her for Christmas . . . Carlyle Moore, 
Jr., and Bert Kalmar, Jr., get together and 
exchange stories about their experiences 
and when they've finished make the other

Success Stories . . . Bill Corson, new 
RKO player, lived in Hollywood for 
years, but failed to get even a peek in at 
the studios. Finally in desperation he so- 
journed to New York, where a talent scout 

saw him and immediately gained for him 
a movie contract. You'll soon see him in 
Coast Patrol. 

Lee Bowman, young Paramount player, 
who looks like Fredric March, says all his 
good luck is coming at once. Within a 
month he met Anne Shirley and started 
taking her out and was assigned an im- 
portant role in Internes Can't Take 

The poem this month is contributed by

Hollywood Stars flash meteorically 
into the sky, twinkle momentarily, 
then dip into the all-enfolding arms 
of obscurity. But a rock which stands 
against the floodtide of all-obliterating 
time is Sid Grauman, star-maker of 
Hollywood. With his magic eye the 
creator of many a career, he stands age- 
lessly, watching them come and watching 
them go. 

When the stars are at the dazzling 
acme of their circuits they come to Sid 
Grauman's show palace, the Chinese 
Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. There 
they press their hand and footprints and 
write their names into a square of soggy 
cement. It hardens, and they have left 
their stamp on cold concrete. There it 
will stand, testifying to the memory of 
one-time greatness, after displacement by 
the movie idols of tomorrow. 

Who is this movieland maestro who 
many years ago as a young man marched 
into Hollywood and found there an infant 
industry, known at that time (by any who 
knew about it) as the nickelodeon indus- 
try'' Come with the writer and lunch 
with Sid Grauman in his present home, 
the Ambassador Hotel, and discover who 
this man is. 

Age is tucked invisibly away behind 
the youthful smile of this wiry little man, 
who will slap you on the back be you 
great or small. And if on your day he is 
in a particularly chipper mood you had 
best be on guard, for Hollywood's skilled 
and noted practical jokers include not one 
who has ever outsmarted Sid Grauman. 
Graying hair depletes not one whit the 
dynamic energy or the impression of 
freshness which dominates Sir Sid, whose 
voice can get through the private secre- 
tary of any big name in Hollywood and 
command the immediate attention of the 
mite or mogul who Sid then hails by his 
first name. 

When Sid Grauman was a boy he dem- 
onstrated the two predominant charac- 
teristics which were to make him Holly- 
wood's greatest showman. His love of 
color and adventure sent him to Alaska 
with the gold rush. His lightning-quick

Al Jolson, who worked for Sid Grauman on 
the stage for $60 a week years ago, puts 
his hands and feet in the soft cement at 
Grauman's Chinese Theatre forecourt, while 
Sir Sid looks on and Jean Kloessner, Holly- 
wood's only velvet-smocked cement finisher,

business acumen led him to sell San Fran- 
cisco newspapers for $1 each while others 
strained their backs prospecting. 

The show business claimed its own 
when Grauman returned to the Golden 
Gate. He joined his father, D. J. Grauman, 
as co-operator of a dime vaudeville house. 

Tragedy is the proved manufacturer of 
greatness. Cruel blows of fate constitute 
the mill from which mighty careers are 
ground. Grauman and son were flattened 
by the catastrophe of 1906. But the San 
Francisco earthquake started two modern 
colossuses. One was the new San Fran- 
cisco. The other was Sid Grauman, master 

With the fire still burning, the Graumans 
pitched a tent on a rented lot on Fillmore 
Street. With cataclysmic ruins piled high 
everywhere to mock the ghost of old San 
Francisco, that city's gallant population 
forgot its woes by filing into this im- 
provised tent theatre. Its advertised at- 
traction reflected true Grauman show- 

"In here nothing will fall on you in case 
of an earthquake."

This scarcely needs explanation, except to point out that Mary Pickford "made her mark" in 

the Chinese Theatre forecourt as one of the first to be so honored, shortly after Sid Grauman 

opened the film theatre showplace of Hollywood. More than half of the cement squares in 

the forecourt now hold prints of the famous of filmdom

In this debris-surrounded canvas Sid 
made his debut as a star -maker. His first 
star was an unknown youth named 
Al Jolson, who performed at $60 a week 
for a half-year. "Even then," Grauman 
tells, "Jolson was a great artist. San 
Francisco acclaimed him the greatest in 
the world. He is a natural in pictures, too." 
Later in an auto show on the same spot 
Al Jolson was paid $25,000 for one week 
of personal appearances. 

Joe E. Brown, opening his career as a 
headliner at the theatre of the Graumans, 
was even in that day very sensational. 
Grauman calls him "a really schooled per- 
former with exceptional versatility. He 
was dancer, acrobat, bare-back rider, and 
comedian." The wide-mouthed one styled 
that show-house where his blazing career 
was ignited "the boiler factory" because it 
featured seventeen shows daily. Before 
each show he would say, "Let's put in 
another rivet." 

Another Grauman product later to 
ascend to Hollywood's peak of cinema 
fame was Jesse L. Lasky, co-founder of 
Paramount Pictures and long a leading 
producer of leading motion picture epics. 
With his sister, Lasky did an act which 
brought in $60 a week between them. The 
Laskys had an express wagon full of 
musical instruments and dressed as 
Russian Hussars. 

One week a magician was among the 
acts played at the Grauman 'Frisco the- 
atre. It seems his feminine "stooge" — 
only they did not call them "stooges" in 
that day — had deserted him. He needed 
a good looking miss to hold the hat from 
which he extracted rabbits and to hand 
him his paraphernalia of legerdemain, so 
the junior Grauman started scouting for 
one. A girl named Bessie Allen applied 
for the job and was hired. A night or so 
later she whispered in the Grauman ear 
that her sister needed work, and why not 
make the magic turn almost super-colossal 
by having two girls work with the disciple 
of the black arts. Grauman agreed and 
the other Allen girl's name was Grace. 
The Gracie Allen of Burns and Allen

The Grauman enterprise, pere et fils, 

migrated to San Jose and opened the 

memorable Grauman's Unique Theatre.

How Fate Tricked Ross Alexander! 

For a Full memory-strewn 
year Ross Alexander was the 
judge, the spectator — and the 
prize — in the strangest race that 
ever was run under the gleaming 
lights of Hollywood. It was a race 
between stardom and boredom — 
boredom not of the simple kind, 
but the utter, futile mental weari- 
ness of a man who was tired of life. 
The race waxed hot against the 
gleam of Hollywood's Aurora, and 
came to an end in the darkness of 
a hay loft far from the film town's 
glitter. Armed with a small 
calibre revolver, Ross Alexander 
left Anne Nagel, his second wife, 
sitting in the parlor of their ranch 
home, and strode out into the 
darkness. He chose the dark and 
lonely way of suicide rather than 
the bright road of film success. A 
single shot in the temple brought 
the end. 

Why Fatal Decision! 

Why did Alexander kill himself 
in the barn of his Encino ranch? 
He left no note to prove conjectures, but 
knowledge of the last year of his brief life 
suggests an answer that stirs no argument. 

Turn the calendar back with us to 
December 6, 1935. Alexander then was 
living with his first wife, Aleta Freile, on 
Woodrow Wilson Drive in the Hollywood 
Hills overlooking the town. 

On that date Alexander rushed to the 
phone, sent a hurry call to the homicide 
squad of the police department. Officers 
sirened through the streets, arrived at the 
actor's home to find the prostrate form of 
his wife in the yard, fatally shot. 

There is no doubt that Ross was broken- 
hearted. He had no explanation for the 
apparent suicide. He had heard a shot,

months, wave a greeting to Hollywood's "lone

and had found her dying when he ran out- 
side. Friends assumed there might have 
been a lover's quarrel that had brought 
pretty Aleta the thought of suicide. 

Aleta's father, Dr. William Freile, of 
Jersey City, N. J., came west upon receiv- 
ing word of the tragedy and demanded a 
thorough investigation by the coroner. A 
week after her death an official suicide 
verdict was returned. 

Prominent friends of the family in New 
Jersey were still unsatisfied, however, and 
a new investigation was made. When the 
report was filed it upheld the findings of 
the previous investigation. 

For weeks to come Alexander appeared 
profoundly depressed, but he threw him- 
self harder than ever into his work at 
Warner Brothers studio. 

He had many acquaintances but not in- 
timates. He was friendly and cheerful 
with everyone on the set while making a 
picture. Some people thought of him as 
the most light-hearted person on the job. 

But they only knew him as an actor. 

When twilight would come to Holly- 
wood Ross Alexander became a lone wolf. 
He would wander away in the dark, often 
to spend his evenings out of sight of his 
fellow men. When he did appear around 
them, his lifted glass was not so much a 
gay cocktail as it was a toast to a memory 
tugging at his heart. 

Melancholy Gradually Lifts 

The ensuing weeks gradually lifted the 
weight of the melancholy Alexander had 
felt. He got bigger, more important roles 
at the studio. Rumors were already float- 
ing around that one day soon Ross would 
be starred in films. 

Then, after completing several films, 
Ross was cast with Anne Nagle in Here 
Comes Carter. That was last summer. In 
September they eloped to Yuma, Ariz., 
and were married. 

This event opened a new phase of his 
remarkable career. Warner Brothers went 
into production with the musical film, 
Ready, Willing and Able. Alexander was 
to be given equal billing with Ruby 
Keeler. Critics on the whole felt that he 

was heading toward great achieve- 

The studio kept Alexander so 
busy that he and his bride found 
it impossible to go on a honey- 
moon. His closer friends (all of 
whom took a greater interest in 
him than he did in them) hoped 
that his second marriage would 
bring an end to the despondency 
he had been showing. Their 
hopes, however, were to be in 

Never Mixed Much 

The young couple occasionally 
bobbed up at night in some supper 
club where they would have a few 
cocktails, then disappear as quietly 
as they appeared. 

At their ranch home they had 

many forms of amusement handy 

— a swimming pool, a badminton 

life, Ross court and a volley ball court. But 

on things the gay younger set of Hollywood 

is cigaret seldom gladdened the shady courts 

of the ranch. 

On December 6, unknown to 
most people, Ross Alexander made the 
first move to indicate stardom had lost the 
race to boredom. It was the first anni- 
versary of Aleta's suicide. On that date 
he ordered his butler-chauffeur, Cornelius 
Stevenson, to bring him his pistol. 

Stevenson, fearing Alexander was again 
overcome by grief, refused to give up the 
gun. They struggled while Alexander 
attempted to insert three shells in the re- 
volver. Finally the actor became calm. 

During Christmas vacation his parents, 
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Ross Smith, of 
Rochester, N. Y., came to visit the young 
married couple. Ross appeared to have 
overcome the moroseness he had shown

Luise Rainer Goes Internationale! 

Iuise Rainer, the Viennese girl Holly- 
wood ceased trying to figure out long 
- J ago. surprised the prophets, even her 
own studio, by becoming Mrs. Clifford 
Odets right after the holidays as this issue 
of Hollywood Magazine was being readied 
for the press. Those supposed to be in 
the know at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and 
others who set themselves up as prophets 
in the private affairs of screen celebrities, 
sensed and insisted that when Luise took 
a vacation in New York after finishing 
months of work in Good Earth, she was 
to meet a mysterious European admirer 
with whom her name often had been 
linked and then decide whether she would 
marry and leave the screen. 

Ever since Luise Rainer, as a sixteen- 
year-old girl, stepped on to a bare Dus- 
seldorf stage for her first audition, she has 
done as she pleases when she wants to 
and does not reason why. No one in 
Hollywood ever knew much about Luise 
because she doesn't know herself, if one 
is to believe fairly well-grounded reports. 
Thus when she headed for Gotham, those 
who did feel the young Viennese actress 
was unsettled in America, waited and lis- 
tened for weeks for some word that would 
bear out their prognostications. They had 
heard of one great love during her early 
stage success in Europe, a romance cut 
short by death. There were rumors of 
another that followed before she came to 
Hollywood and soared to film renown via 
her first picture, Escapade, later in The 
Great Ziegfeld. 

Keeps Actions Veiled 

But no word, romantic or otherwise, 
came. Rumors were rife that she never 
went to New York at all, but after weeks 
of silence, she came back, suffering from 
a throat infection. Paler, slighter, per- 
haps more soulful than the tawny-haired, 
bright-eyed, whimsical Luise they had 
known, she came back laughing at what 
some styled a mystery vacation. 

She speaks freely enough with inti- 
mates, but she can't see why, being a mo- 
tion picture actress qualifies one to deal 
out advice, opinions and personal experi- 
ences. She was queried about the vaca- 
tion. Said she went to New York, saw 
shows, visited the Group Theatre, even 
joined the latter's dancing class. She did 
mention that her escort to theatres and 
other places had been Clifford Odets, the 
author of Communist plays, whose Awake 
and Smg rocketed him from extreme 
poverty to success in Manhattan less than 
two years ago and who found Hollywood 
then eager for his services. 

Met Odets on Set 

She met Odets when he came on The 
Great Ziegjeld set during the time he was 
doing the script for The General Died at 
Dawn. Theirs seemed just a casual ac- 
quaintance, but apparently something 
happened while they were together in 
New York to light the fires of romance. 

From New York Luise went to Con- 
necticut where she took a house and began 
a long-deserved rest after her arduous 
work in Good Earth. When reporters 
pierced the veil of her secrecy, she fled 
the house and in so doing caught a cold 
that brought on the throat infection, which 
put her in a New York hospital. After a 

MARCH, 1937 

week there sans improvement, she boarded 
a plane for California, against advice of 
her physician. 

The trip was a nightmare. Stabs of 
pain came with increasing frequency and 
the passengers, all men, expressed sym- 
pathy for the "poor little foreign girl." 
Some gave up their seats in the plane that 
she might lie down and rest. At Kansas 
City they begged her to leave the plane, 
but she was adamant in her refusal and 
she was met at a Los Angeles airport by 
an ambulance. 

Again Hollywood was abashed. Had 
Luise Rainer married while away? Where 
was the man? When she had recovered 
sufficiently to be questioned Luise said: 

"All those rumors are nonsense. I am 
not married. I did not go to New York 
to make any romantic decision. I am glad 
to be back in my quiet home, this time 
to rest." 

Perhaps until Luise Rainer and 
Clifford Odets went to the Los Angeles 
County Hall of Records to get a marriage 
license, this girl that puzzled Hollywood 
could not honestly have told them she 
would marry. Even the studio did not 
know their intention until newshawks 
phoned to say application for a license had 
been made. Then, a public wedding was 
on the taboo list. There would be only 
a civil ceremony at her Brentwood home, 
with only two witnesses — Lewis Milestone 
and his wife — Luise decreed. 

\Continued on page 73] 

With sangfroid comparable to that with which 
she might have announced she had just ac- 
quired a new chapeau, Luise Rainer (above) 
told studio attaches she and Clifford Odets 
(below) playwright, had taken out a license 
to marry. Even those supposed to be in the 
know about the Viennese were surprised

The Wise Wives of Hollywood! 

There Are No set and definite rules in 
the Hollywood marriage game. All 
the winning wives, the ones who have 
beaten the odds of the game and who have 
preserved their happiness, their homes and 
their husbands, have made their own rules 
to fit their own individual cases. Each 
one has worked out her problems in her 
own way. 

Take, for instance, the cases of the two 
record-holders for long-time marriages, 
Lucille Gleason and Via Hersholt. Re- 
cently the Gleasons celebrated the thir- 
tieth anniversary of their wedding, while 
the Hersholts proudly boast of twenty -five 
years of married happiness. But, aside 
from their records in endurance, these two 
marriages have nothing else in common. 
Their success has been achieved by two 
widely differing methods. 

Long in Cooperation 

Lucille Gleason has always been, and is 
today, an actress, writer and director. She 
was on the stage when she met and 
married her Jimmy and she has worked 
with him almost constantly ever since. 
They have written, directed and ap- 
peared together in many stage plays and 

They have built their fame and fortune 
together, working side by side. Today 
they still work together, not often- in the 
same pictures but in the same business and 
in the same town. Their happiness is 
based primarily on a mutual interest in 
their work. They have shared their leisure, 
too. They like people and gaiety and 
parties so they have enjoyed the same 
friends and the same fun. By continuing 
through the years to be Jimmy's co- 
worker, his closest business associate, his 
most valued adviser, Lucille has kept her 
marriage perfect and complete. 

On the other hand, Via Hersholt has 
played no part in Jean's work or his pro- 
fessional interests. She met the young 
Danish actor when he came to this country 
years ago with a company of fellow actors 
to represent Denmark at the San Fran- 
cisco World's Fair. From the day of their 
marriage, the American-born Via has been 
the homemaker, the wife, the mother and 
the careful keeper of the household budget 
in lean days and in the full, rich ones 
of the later years. The Copenhagen- 
born Jean has been the worker, the pro- 

Really Lives Two Lives 

"I have really lived two lives, Jean's and 
my own," Via said once, "but always, 
Jean's has come first." 

That is the secret of Via's success. She 
has lived her own personal, feminine life, 
found her own pleasures in women friends, 
luncheons, afternoon parties, while Jean 
was busy at the studio. Then his leisure 
hours have belonged entirely to him, have 
been devoted to his interests, his friends, 
his collections of rare books, his amateur 
printing, his parties where the delicious 
foods of his homeland are served in 
the colorful taproom of their home. 

The Hersholt home life centers around 
Jean. Via has insisted upon that. 

"I have far more leisure time than 
Jean," she explained, "so I can do the 
things I enjoy without interfering with 
his pleasures. Then, when we are to- 
gether, his wishes receive first considera- 
tion. That is only fair and just." 

Via Hersholt's formula for marriage 

Here's happiness personified! Wallace and Rita Beery have cemented their love more closely 
through the tie represented by little Carol Anne. Mrs. Beery devotes her time to mothering 
"the apple of Wally's eye" and Wally too. And out of all this is born better understanding 

success is the one generally followed by 
the wiser wives of Hollywood, changed, 
of course, to fit their own needs and con- 
ditions. And, strangely enough, or per- 
haps not so strangely, most of the success- 
ful wives have been professional women, 
actresses or business women, who have 
given up their own careers to devote their 
entire time and energy to the success and 
happiness of the men whom they have 
married. Via Hersholt, Phyllis Astaire, 
True Foster, Marcelite Boles are among 
the few exceptions to this rule. 

But one and all, ex-actresses or just 
plain girls, they have found their own and 
their husbands' happiness by quietly 
adapting themselves and their lives to the 
wishes and lives of their husbands. 

Phyllis Astaire was a young widow with 
a small child when she met the dancing 
Fred, who was then one of the brightest 
stars on Broadway. She knew nothing of 
working conditions or of theatrical life. 
She had been a sheltered, carefully 
guarded girl, a popular debutante and a 
shielded wife. But when she married a 
man from a different world, a man who 
had practically grown up in the theatre 
and whose way of life was entirely 
different from the one to which she was 
accustomed, she immediately changed her 
life to suit his. After Fred's overwhelming 
success in The Gay Divorcee, they estab- 
lished a permanent home in Hollywood 
and Phyllis entered whole-heartedly into 
[Continued on page 57] 

Robert Montgomery and his wife, Elizabeth, 
who gave up a career on the stage to devote 
herself to Bob and their children. She is de- 
clared to be particularly shy of cameras 

When Phyllis Astaire and the dancing Fred 
were married she had to learn a new life, the 
theatre as distinguished from the daily routine 
of being one of society's top debutantes 



Paradox in 

To See The glamorous, magnificent 
womanhood of Doris Nolan in person 
or on the screen is to see a plum of 
full and ripened maturity. Suave expe- 
rience and full background sparkle from 
her eyes and lips and are electric in her 
conversation. She seems to have lived, 
say, about twenty-six years crammed full 
of interesting life. 

But Doris is a personality of twenty-six 
with a birth certificate of twenty. Right 
you are, this dazzling siren of the screen 
is only a baby in years. In fact, being 
under-age she had to have her contract 
validated in court to make it legal. You 
ask, how does she do it? 

Immediately you wonder. Is it extremely 
adroit use of make-up which gives her 
this ripened appearance? Perhaps she has 
had to struggle bitterly to help support 
her family for the last five years. Or has 
she constantly associated with older

how genuine it is, she is becoming one of 
'he biggest names in Hollywood by her 
work out on the New Universal Studio lot. 
It is not that all this is crusting her in 
dignity. Far from it. She is attired in 
slacks, talking to the writer as we sprawl 
informally on the lawn before her cottage 
on the studio lot. We get an idea of why 
she can scintillate with such sparkling 
maturity at an age when most girls are 
giggling and twittering.

"In my girlhood I had a strong tendency 
to be an introvert," she tells. "I deter- 
mined to overcome that, to outgrow my 
shell and make friends and do things. 
Hence I became a deliberate mixture of 
the introvert and the extrovert." 

Talking cold turkey with Doris, we find 
she is very much of a real person. There 
is no exterior pretense which creates false

bears an outstanding sense of humor.

There is no more free, more untram-

neither from an irrepressible childishness 
in one so young or because of a desire to 
let off steam from pressure of her picture 
work. She does things which seem screwy 
simply because she has no inhibitions 
[Continued on page 50] 



No" Girl In "Yes" Town! 

The Word "no" is in the dictionary, 
to be sure. Yet it is little used in 
Hollywood. Great numbers of words 
have been written about the "yes" people 
in the motion picture industry. And it 
isn't all a gag. There is a great deal of 
truth in the saying that this person or that 
person yessed his or her way to fame and 
success. People who do not agree and 
aren't afraid to say so usually end up 
holding the bag — and an empty bag at that. 
Frances Farmer is the exception. And 
a mighty talented, beautiful exception, we 
might add. Unlike the many rebels who 
make good front page newspaper copy by 
their peculiar tactics, she cares little for 
consequence. She is a woman of strong 
convictions, mentally and physically 
equipped to fight for what she thinks 
right. Temperamentally, she is a combina- 
tion of Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn 
and Margaret Sullavan. Physically, she 
has an attractiveness and a personality all 
her own. In the matter of acting talent, 

she bids fair to stand alone atop a pedestal 
surrounded by admiring throngs from the 
nations of the earth. 

In the short period of little more than 
a year, this girl, through her work in four 
pictures, has earned the coveted right to 
star billing. Hollywood may begrudge it 
to her, for Hollywood has a way of looking 
askance at strangers, but Hollywood also 
has a way of preferring the dividends that 
can be paid by performers who enjoy the 
public favor. And anyone who saw her 
marvelous performance in dual roles in 
Come and Get It and who later listened to 
the comments of theatre patrons as they 
departed can little doubt the full measure 
of her newly earned popularity. 

Frances is conscious of her new found 
success and she has her own ideas on why 
it has happened. 

"The old timers," she says, "have had 
it long enough out here. They got along 
all right at the start, pioneered and all 
that sort of thing, but your audience 

Of strong convictions, mentally and physically equipped to fight for what she thinks is right, 
Frances Farmer has been called a composite of Garbo, Hepburn and Sullavan. Physically 
attractive and exhibiting ability in acting, she earned the right to star billing via four films

psychology is changing, you know. People 
are demanding more and more intelligent 
presentations nowadays. It's really not 
hard, when you think everything out for 
yourself before you do it." 

With the public acclaim which has been 
hers, with the comforts and luxuries which 
result from the emoluments of motion 
picture success, one would think that she 
would be completely happy in her new 
work. With most girls, it would be so 
But Frances Farmer is not like most girls 
She is a person unto herself and she isn't 
entirely happy in Hollywood. She does 
not consider her present station any par- 
ticular accomplishment. What she wants 
is to be a great stage actress. That may 
come later. Indeed, it probably will come 
later, because Miss Farmer is a very de- 
termined girl. She is constantly studying, 
working to reach that goal. 

Why This Rebellion? 

Why this rebellion? Why this discon- 
tent? The question is a logical one. But 
it cannot be answered in a few words. One 
has to go back into a lifetime, searching 
bare the facts of youth that plot the course 
of adult mentality. 

Frances Farmer comes from a typical 
American family. Her father, E. M 
Farmer, is an attorney at law, practicing 
in Seattle. Dabbling a bit in politics, hav- 
ing varied business interests, being one 
who enjoys his home life, he is what you 
would call the average lawyer. Her mother 
is the ideal housekeeper and home maker 
Thus it will be seen that the early life of 
Frances Farmer differed little from the 
early home life of a million other girls in 
the United States. 

But as the years of adolescence blos- 
somed into womanhood, as the mind de- 
veloped from the dreams of childhood to 
the mature reasoning of an adult, Frances

within Hollywood's nebulous boundaries. 

In so many words. Hollywood just 
"isn't" — except as a state of mind. 

Physically and civically, Hollywood is 
part and parcel of Los Angeles. It is a 
district, a vicinity, of the great city that

sprawls from the mountains to the sea 
and covers more area than any other

Its very boundaries are undefined. If 
a person craves that distinction, he may 
— and does — claim Hollywood as his habi- 
tat, though he lives miles away from its 
original site. So many do! 

Still and all, there is a Hollywood. You 
sense it after you leave downtown Los 
Angeles and reach Hollywood Boulevard, 
anywhere between Western Avenue and 
points west. Or Sunset Boulevard like- 

Nothing tangible gives you evidence of 
its being — nothing official, one might bet- 
ter say. Every detail of Los Angeles' 
usual city life is in view, and familiar 
— the same sort of homes and people; the 
same names on shops; the same trolley 
cars and the same congestion of traffic. 
You can't spot a dividing line. 

But there is something in the very 
atmosphere that places you at once. It 
is different. How, depends upon your 
own mental slant. But it is there. You 
know you have "gone Hollywood," even 
if you are convinced beyond cavil that 
there is no such place. 

But there is something — intangible, in- 
articulate, intransigent — that still clings 
about the heart of Hollywood that dates 
it. brands it, identifies it. It seems in- 
delible, ineradicable. Other towns, now 
the homes of the bigger studios, do not 
have it. But Hollywood inherited it from 
the beginnings of movie life there, and 
has never wholly lost it, though much of 
cinema activity has departed from its 
erstwhile confines. 

For, by and large, there was once a 
real, existent town of Hollywood, though 
as such it never, even for a day, was the 
actual capital of the screen world, or the 
locale of a picture. I know; I lived there. 

Yes. Hollywood was, once upon a time, 
a real city — a municipal actuality. It had 
a genuine city government, with all its 
accessories and expenses. It had defined 
legal boundaries. It had a post office 
that functioned independently. It had a

Even in December; It's MAY-time for May 

For Over Fifty Years she has been an 
actress — but she is less of the actress- 
world and more of "real folks" than 
anyone we know. Few people can under- 
stand it. Muzzy May, as she is known to 
all those who love her — and they are 
scores — was sitting in a rocking chair, 
knitting, on the Mission Inn lawn not long 
ago, when a small girl began circling 
around her. Her finger thoughtfully be- 
tween her teeth, the little girl finally found 
boldness enough to inquire in a tiny voice. 
"Are you May Robson?" 

"Yes, I am, dear," said May. clicking 
away. The little girl came still closer. 
"Are you May Robson, the actress"!" 
Again May informed her that she was. 
"Well!" said the little girl shaking her 
head amazedly, "Why don't you act then?" 
That's what we mean when we say that 
few people, even children, can understand 
it. Her naturalness, her sweet old-lady 
ways — they are like those of your grand- 
mothers, or the writer's; she is not the ex- 
travagantly mannered grand old dame of 
the theatre you might expect her to be 
. . . just a simple woman, a simple neigh- 
bor, a simple friend, never too important 
to find time and interest for others. 

Trailer Boys Win Visit 

There were those two extra boys she 
met on a set recently. They told her about 
the second-hand trailer they had bought 
to live in and May was all interest at once 
— how novel and practical! She'd love to 
come visit them! And that's precisely what 
she did. On a Sunday afternoon she went 
to have tea with the boys in their trailer, 
anchored at a twenty-five-cent parking 
lot. This is the sort of thing that she's 
always doing. No interest, no person, is 
too trivial for her attention. 

It was twenty-six years ago that May 
Robson first went out of her way to do a 
good deed — and that deed has brought her 
so much pleasure throughout the years 
that it has become a habit. It was during 
one of the busiest years of her career. She 
was playing the title role in Tish and pre- 
paring to take it on tour — one-night stands 
mostly. She knew these one-night stands. 

Beloved May Robson, known to her hundreds of friends as Muzzy May, smiles happily at her 
fans as her pet dog, Mitii, eyes them too. Her newest role is in Woman in Distress, for 
Columbia, scene of her great triumph, Lady for a Day. While she's been "in distress" at 
times in her career, those days are so far back that her memory of them is particularly dim 

how lonely and difficult they were, and 
rather than take just a maid with her this 
time, she wanted someone who would also

curly-haired, sparkling-eyed lass in the early 
days of her career when fame seemed far away 

MARCH, 1937 

When this picture was made more than fifty 
years ago, even May Robson never visualized 
the saga of success that she would write in 
the entertainment fields of stage and screen 

be her companion. A young woman, 
Lillian Harmer, tall, thin, weighing 
scarcely a hundred pounds, applied for 
the job. 

"I took one look at her and I knew she'd 
never do." There was a look in May 
Robson's eyes that went back those 
twenty-six years, as she recalled that 
meeting. "She was too frail; she'd never 
stand the strain of those one-night stands, 
and I told her so. Then she begged me for 
a trial — just for a month's trial. She told 
me about her baby; her husband was dead 
— she had to have a job. But if I weren't 
pleased with her, after a month, I could 
dismiss her, and there would be no tears, 
no hard feelings. That was twenty-six 
years ago . . . we're still together." May 
chuckled softly, "Lillian's still on trial! 
The wonderful thing is that she's a big 
strapping, healthy woman now — well and 
happy, and successful. But you've seen 
her, I guess — she does a lot of work in pic-

Green Light Flares 
To Emotional Heights 

Errol Flynn climbed upon a huge 
boulder, the perpendicular face of 
which rose sheer from the crystal 
clear waters of Sherwood Lake forty -odd 
feet below him. His sharp eyes, trained by 
many years of a precarious catch-as- 
catch-can existence in the South Seas, 
pierced by glassy surface, seeking any pos- 
sible jagged outcropping rocks that might 
rip open a human form or crush a skull 
like an eggshell. 

He turned to the assistant director. Lew 
Borzage, who stood behind him with a 
group of curious technicians. 

"We move over to the other side of the 
lake now, don't we?" the bronzed, six- 
foot-one Irishman inquired. 

Borzage nodded. "The next set-up is 
just above the dam," he replied. 

"How far as the crow flies?" Flynn idly 

"Or perhaps I should say as the fish

into the twisted grin that has won him

"Take my clothes around, and I'll beat 
you there," he said and, stripping quickly 
down to a pair of skin-tight athletic shorts, 
he proceeded to launch himself into a 
graceful arc that ended in a scarcely per- 
ceptible splash as his slender body knifed 
the water. 

Flynn did not beat the technical crew 

Errol Flynn (left) and Walter Abel flirt with 

peril when they conduct experiments to find 

a vaccine deterrent for spotted fever, the 

motivation for Green Light 


Tension is keen at Errol Flynn's life is threatened while seeking a spotted fever serum in 
Green Light. Walter Abel, his associate, urges him to buck up as Margaret Sullavan, a nurse; 
Anita Louise, who loves Flynn, and Henry O'Neill, a doctor who shirked his duty, gaze anxiously 

of picture to which Flynn had become ac- 
customed. For one thing it placed him in 
civilian clothes for the first time in his 
screen career. He portrays Dr. Newell 
Paige, spectacular young protege of one 
of the nation's most prominent surgeons. 
The filming of Green Light was not 
without thrills. Certainly an atmosphere 
of extreme tension overhung the troupe 
the first time the representative of the 
Federal Experimental Laboratory at 
Hamilton, Montana, brought on the set a 
jar full of wood-ticks, the tiny pests 
that carry the dreaded Rocky Mountain 
Spotted fever. Every member of the com- 
pany, Director Borzage, Flynn, Anita 
Louise, Margaret Lindsay, Walter Abel, 
Henry O'Neill and Sir Cedric Hardwicke, 
the titled English character actor, in ad- 
dition to the entire technical crew as a 
safeguard had received immunizing in- 

Insects Important 

Those same tiny insects were extremely 
important factors in converting Dr. 
Douglas' novel into screen entertainment. 
Around them revolves the gripping cli- 
mactic sequence of the production — the 
sequence in which Flynn, dishonored in 
his profession because he has shouldered 
the blame for a fatal operation performed 
by his surgical superior, Henry O'Neill, 
develops the Rocky Mountain Spotted 
fever vaccine in a rough, abandoned farm- 
house on Boone Mountain, Montana. 

Real live ticks were used in the se- 
quence under the supervision of the lab- 
oratory man, who counted them after each 
scene to make sure none had escaped. 
Flynn permitted a tick to crawl on his 
arm supposedly to bite him when he 
reached the point of testing his vaccine. 

It took Warner a full two years to con- 
vert Green Light into Celluloid.

[Continued on page 78] 


Errol Flynn finally is to come to the screen 

in civilian clothes in Green Light. Here he 

is with Anita Louise and Sylvia, a dog that 

weathers spotted fever in the film 

of Warner Bros. Cosmopolitan's Green 
Light to the opposite side of the lake, but 
he touched the shore less than a minute 
after Frank Borzage, the director, and his 
brother and assistant, Lew, scrambled 
from their automobile. 

"We had to skid around corners to do 
it," the assistant confessed as he glanced 
at his watch and noted that the drive had 
taken thirty-two minutes. 

The incident was typical of the Irish 
soldier-of-fortune who turned quite by 
accident from a life of adventure below 
the equator to the simpler but, in his case, 
scarcely less fascinating existence of acting. 

Green Light was decidedly a new type 
of picture for Flynn; new, that is, by 
comparison with the swashbuckling char- 
acter he portrayed in Captain Blood and 
the daring Captain Geoffrey Vickers of 
The Charge of the Light Brigade. 

Adapted from Lloyd Douglas' best-sell- 
ing novel of the same name, Green Light 
is a tense emotional drama, a sharp depar- 
ture from the spectacular adventure type 


Battle of Wits on the Cheyney Front! 

William Powell, properly sideburned 
and with servile pose, walked onto 
Stage Eleven bowing pleasantly to 

"Good morning, Madam," he greeted 
Joan Crawford. 

"Good day to you, Sir," he bowed to 
Robert Montgomery. 

Montgomery took an extra draw on his 
pipe, surveyed Powell up and down — his 
sideburns, his meticulous store-purchased 
butler's suit. 

"Had I known you were going to play 
Little Lord Fauntleroy, I would have worn 
a bib for my wardrobe!" said Montgomery. 

And the Battle of Wits was on, to con- 
tinue for several weeks during the filming 
of The Last of Mrs. Cheyney and with such 
other inimitable mimes as Frank Morgan, 
Nigel Bruce, Benita Hume, Ralph Forbes, 
Jessie Ralph, Aileen Pringle and Phyllis 
Claire wielding a barb of banter as oc- 
casional competition. 

Smart English Comedy 

The smart English comedy from the 
facile pen of Frederick Lonsdale was dis- 
tinctive in many other ways. It made a 
butler of Powell, who is so closely iden- 
tified with detectives and lawyer roles, 
and divorced him from his many lovely 
screen wives. It returned Joan Crawford 
to conservatism, both in characterization 
and fashion. In it, she appears as smart 
instead of sensational, distinctive instead 
of eccentric, graciously sophisticated in- 
stead of brittlely flamboyant. 

Joan Crawford as Mrs. Cheyney in The Last 

of Mrs. Cheyney, admonishes William Powell, 

who plays the butler role: "You shouldn't 

have come here until I gave the word" 

Robert Montgomery, playing the detective 

role in The Losf of Mrs. Cheyney, reminds 

Joan Crawford, playing the name role, that 

he is in love with Mrs. Cheyney 

"The 1937 Joan Crawford, who makes 
her new bow in The Last of Mrs. 
Cheyney," Adrian, M-G-M's fashion dic- 
tator, predicts, "will become the new 
person who typifies the things for which 
women strive. While the earlier type of 
womanhood she portrayed was obviously 
dramatic, the new Joan Crawford will 
become intangibly dramatic." 

"She should play more conservative 
roles, as she does in her new picture," 
commented a technician on the set. "Her 
unusual talents should not be confined to 
freakish interpretations on the screen. 
They are more adaptable to level-headed 

While conservatism on the screen is 
preached for Miss Crawford, there is no 
conservatism on Stage Eleven. 

A one-day visit on the sound stage is 
sufficient to prove it. 

Settings Palatial 

The scene is the stately exterior of the 
Duchess of Ebley's English mansion with 
its surrounding gardens, hedges, paths, 
terrace and ornate fishpond. The director 
has squeezed his corpulent personage into 
a canvas chair to scan his leather-bound 
script. The electricians on their high 
perches and in the rafters are tinker- 
ing with the huge lights. Cameraman 
George Folsey is bossing his assistants 

Montgomery and Nigel Bruce are lazing 
near the pool, watching two overalled

"My dear Mrs. Cheyney — you are a godsend!" Benita Hume thus compliments Joan Crawford (center) in a scene from The Lasf of Mrs. 
Cheyney, with Nigel Bruce and Robert Montgomery on the left, and Frank Morgan and Ralph Forbes on the right. When you read the 
story you will see that this group of sterling players had rare fun in making this Metro-Soldwyn-Mayer production

Putting on the Dog! 

Whenever You Have Seen a cute dog 
on the screen, the chances are that 
you have said, or at least thought: 
"I'll bet Rover would be good in pictures, 
if he just had a chance. He knows a lot 
of tricks and he'll do whatever I tell him 
to do." 

But before you pawn the family joois 
to buy Rover a dog ticket to Hollywood, 
remember this: Knowing a lot of tricks 
is one thing. Performing them before a 
camera is another. If you brought Rover 
to a studio to try to get him a job, the first 
thing the casting director would want to 
know is: "Will Rover take a cue?" 

A picture dog has to be able to do what- 
ever is asked of him with only a few re- 
hearsals, and since the sound track of a 
picture records everything that is said 
while a scene is being made, the dog must 
be able to work with silent signals or 
"cues" from his trainer. For example, he 
must know that a certain gesture of the 
hand means "bring in the morning paper" 
or "roll over and play dead." 

Your Rover may be able to do a lot of 
tricks at home. But transplant him to a 
new environment where there are bright 
lights and strange people and, unless he is 
a very unusual dog, the chances are that 
he will become confused and frightened 
and will refuse to do his tricks. That is 
why studio casting directors prefer to use 
animals that have been trained for picture 

Occasionally, however, a dog with no 
picture training gets a break. Take 
Tuffy, the dog that played with Wally 
Beery in Old Hutch. 

Tuffy belonged to an old sheep herder 
who lived up in the mountains. One day 
the sheep herder was badly injured. He 
explained things to Tuffy and told him 
that he would have to be boss for awhile. 
He showed Tuffy how to pick up a

basket and carry it in his mouth. Then 
he wrote a note and put it in the basket 
and sent the dog over the trail for medi- 
cine and groceries. The sheep herder was 
confined to his bed for many weeks. Dur- 
ing that time he and Tuffy worked out 
a lot of tricks. The dog learned to identify 
forty-five different objects and to go and 
get any of them for his master, on signal. 
In fact, Tuffy displayed such marked in- 
telligence his master decided that he ought 
to be in the movies. So, as soon as the 
sheep herder recovered from his injury, 
he and Tuffy hitch-hiked to Hollywood. 

Jack Hinds, who has charge of the ani- 
mal casting department at M-G-M, gave 
Tuffy his first chance. And Tuffy 
made good. Before he goes into a scene 
the old sheep herder explains to Tuffy 
just what he is supposed to do. The dog 
listens intently. 

"Now do you think you can do that?" 
the sheep herder asks. 

"Woof, woof," barks Tuffy, and wags 
his tail. 

The sheep herder then gives him his 
cues for the action. The dog has a re-

OF All The places we want to feel at home, none is more important 
than — home! To most people the task of being at home, at 
home, is no problem. It's a relief. But to the Hollywood star. 
subject as she is to incessant entertaining, unexpected visits and hurry 
studio calls, the business of being at home combines the agility of a 
fireman with the eternal poise of a tea garden hostess. 

Karen Morley in addition to being a popular and busy screen star 
is also a wife and a mother. Her home must be a home, not a stuffy 
show place for the inquisitive. 

It must bespeak comfort and because it's fun to be comfortable 
Karen has chosen a wardrobe that fits the warmth and comfort of 
her own home. 

If Karen isn't playing tennis or riding, she's using up the surplus 
energy playing with her two-year-old son, affectionately called Mike. 
They romp and play on the sand all day. 

Both she and her husband, Charles 
Vidor, love the remoteness of their home, 
and its distance from the social duties in 
Hollywood. They keep a tiny apartment 
in town when the rare urge to dress up 
and do the night clubs comes upon them. 

The home situated high on a bluff over- 
looking the ocean is a reproduction of an 
Italian castle with huge iron gates that 
"swing open for guests. Upon entering the 
home and removing coats formality ends. 
Friends walk down hundreds of steps 
leading to the beach and find themselves 

Karen dons this aquamarine jersey dress for sportswear. 
A lacquered zipper in the same shade as the dress 
provides a novel fastening down the front of the dress 

MARCH, 1937 

Karen Morley never looked more lovely than 
in this white chiffon gown cut on princess lines. 
Groups of pink roses decorate the full sleeves 

confronted with a barbecue pit upon 
which tender, juicy steaks are broiling! 

That is the sum and substance of the 
Morley brand of entertaining and inci- 
dentally the guests come back time and 
time again. Many an evening Karen has 
an old fashioned fish fry and the host and 
hostess spend the morning catching their 
own fish. 

Outfits which are smart in appearance 
yet comfortable, informal and practical 
grace her closets. Any one of them will 
stand the scrutiny of interviewers and at 
the same time allow her the freedom and 
ease to which she, as a "home body" is en- 

Living in a home on high cliffs overlook- 
ing the wide expanse of the Pacific, Karen, 
quite naturally, is impelled to go for an occasional swim in the ocean. 

Where the ordinary individual may slip on some comfortable suit, senti- 
mentally held over from several years back, the screen star must make her 
personal appearances in garments that reflect her glamour. 

Here again Karen has solved the problem of style and answered the call of 
comfort by choosing a bathing suit in which a young lady may actually swim, 
play volley ball on the beach and still look stunning to fans, who set high the 
standards of their favorites. 

Karen's choice is a white two-piece suit consisting of brassiere and trunks 
Over her suit the star wears a brown and white striped flannel beach coat when 
some protection from the sun or wind is needed. 

Another outfit Karen has selected for style and comfort is a play suit with one 
of the new beach coats in black and white linen to wear over it for the occasion

Brilliant Teeth-Healthy Gums 
with this Double Protection 

Your teeth may look clean and white, 
even though your gums are soft and 
spongy. That's the insidious thing about 
half-way dental care. Forhan's Tooth 
Paste, created by an eminent dental sur- 
geon, provides the double protection every- 
one needs. It does both vital jobs — cleans 
teeth and safeguards gums. 

After brushing your teeth, massage 
your gums, too, with Forhan's, just as 
dentists advise. Note how it stimulates 
the gums, how clean and fresh your mouth 
feels! Soon you can see the difference. 

Forhan's costs no more than most ordi- 
nary tooth pastes, and the big new tube 
saves you money. Buy Forhan's today, 
and e7td half-way care once for all. Also 
sold in Canada.

postmark of its own, and a place in the 
postal guide, and on maps and in gaz- 
eteers. It had a history, and a purpose 
in being. And if it hadn't been for lack 
of one essential need, it might have had 
all these things yet, even as does Beverly 
Hills, its very near neighbor, the home 
of so many of its cinema stars. It might 
actually have been the cinema capital 
in truth, instead of being only the fictional 

But because of that need — water — ob- 
tainable no other way, when the need 
was dire, Hollywood permitted the octo- 
pus of Los Angeles to extend its tentacles 
northwest and embrace it. That was 
years ago. Ergo, ever since, Hollywood 
has been only that state of mind inade- 
quately defined herein. Perhaps, with 
its world-fame, Hollywood is now sorry 
that it ever listened to the siren song of 
its big neighbor. Possibly it wishes that 
it had not sold its unknown birthright 
for a mess of municipal pottage, as it 
were, but had borne the ills it wotted of. 
and not sought a bourne from which 
there was no returning — sought death for 
its own self in the Nirvana of municipal 
gargantuan greatness. Who can say, since 
now Hollywood has no voice of its own 
anyhow, and is dumb civically, even if 
vocally it talks to the world? 

What of Early Hollywood? 

What, then, of that other— that real 
Hollywood of long ago? What was it 
like? Why did it eliminate itself? Would 
it have been better off had it maintained 
its individuality? 

Or would it have been for all time just 
another small town fringed on the skirts 
of Our Lady of the Angels — struggling, 
fighting, copying; basking in the shadow 
of greatness that it might share only 

Let's lift the curtains of the past and 
glimpse the Hollywood of three decades 
or so ago, before the glory (or blight) 
of the cinema gave it a fame yet stole 
its body and soul after it had civically 
died anyhow, of its own volition. 

Hollywood was founded as a residen- 
tial settlement of small ranches about 
1887, by one H. H. Wilcox and his wife. 

Here is An air view of Hollywood's teeming 
center. Cahuenga Boulevard bisects the view 
from left to right, with Hollywood Boulevard 
and Vine Street in the very center of the tall 
buildings. This lone in 1901, is shown below 

because they liked the beauty of its lie, 
and the sweep of country down from 
Cahuenga Pass to the valley below. It 
grew very slowly. There was no reason for 
its being save the loveliness of its site and 
surroundings, and the desire of some few 
folk for a quiet home place near enough 
to the — then minor metropolis for fairly 
easy access in those horse and buggy days. 
Its original, tenuous boundaries enclosed 
about 4% square miles of land. 

There was much country between the 
new community and the city — miles of 
it. Another settlement, Colegrove, also 
intervened. Ever hear of that place? Yet, 
there, a few big studios still flourish, in- 
stead of in Hollywood itself — the last of 
the original crop, as it might be said. 

From its day of birth till 1903, Holly- 
wood was without form, and void. In 
that era, most of Southern California was 
strictly rural. But after the turn of the 
century, the land began to fill up, and 
definite governmental units became ad- 
visable. So Hollywood became a city all

To keep skin young looking 

— learn how lo invigorate 


Hard to believe — but those little 
lines that look as if they'd been 
creased into your skin from the out- 
side, actually begin underneath! 

First, hundreds of little cells, fibres 
and blood vessels underneath begin 
to function poorly. Then, the under 
tissues sag. That's what makes your 
outside skin fall into creases. 

The same way with dull, dry skin! 
It's little oil glands underneath that 
function faultily — and rob your out- 
side skin of the oil it needs to keep 
it supple, young looking. 

But think!— - You can invigorate 
those failing under tissues! You can 
start those faulty oil glands func-

need not be discouraged when lines 
and skin dryness begin. 

Start to rouse your underskin with 
Pond's "deep-skin" treatments. Soon 

you'll see lines smoothing out, skin

It was some sixty years ago that the 
word began to spread — 

"It's not true that we women were'

They were passing on the news of

marvelous benefit. Neighbors had be-

to neighboring cities — 

For 6 1 years this whispering cam-

CAMILLE— (M-G-M)— The grand, 
old tear-welling favorite of several gen- 
erations is resuscitated in its 
^* most imposing form to garner 

\m^ more tribute of feminine 

f^^L tears — possibly a few of the 

y /~V) less-hardened male film fans 

[©>/ — with the glamorous aid of 

*1 Greta Garbo and Robert 

Taylor. That this outmoded 
museum piece of sentimentality would 
draw by its story merits is doubtful, but 
with the box office magic of the Garbo - 
Taylor combination it promises to be 

Several times Garbo's performance rises 
to emotional power and expressiveness 
above anything she has done before. The 
death scene is grimly stark, yet not sordid 
in the old tradition. Garbo has changed 
her appearance oddly. She smiles often, 
and except for her voice she is almost 
a new Garbo. Taylor, as Armand, will 
warmly please his many admirers. He is 
a manly, handsome and ardent lover. 
Some of the love scenes are of high tem- 
perature. Lionel Barrymore, when he 
pleads with Camille to give up his son. 
offers a particularly moving performance. 
Henry Daniell is distinguished as the 
ruthlessly possessive baron. Lenore Ulric 

Lily Pons, Gene Raymond and Jack Oakie seen 
in a sequence of That Girl From Porh, in which 
the dark-eyed diva is starred with Raymond in 
the romantic spot opposite and the inimitable 
Oakie providing comedy 

as Camille's red-light rival, and Jessie 
Ralph and Laura Hope Crews score com- 
pellingly. No matter how many Camille's 
you have seen, don't miss Garbo and 
Taylor in a fine portrayal. 


— (Warners) — Done in Technicolor and 
filmed largely in the Pacific 
Northwest, this James Oliver 
Curwood story that last was 
filmed in 1916, comes to life 
in a fashion that is best de- 
scribed as gorgeous. George 
Brent heads the cast and gives 
a two-fisted performance. 
There is battle in the air every minute, 
the strife originating between Beverly 
Roberts, who inherited the Barton lum- 
bering operations from her father, and the 
rival Russet camp, jointly owned by Brent 
and his brother, played by Robert Barrat. 
Brent is the brash, playboy brother, who 
is shipped to camp to cure him of worth- 
lessness. He gets into the rival camp and 
can't get out. While masquerading he 
falls in love with Beverly Roberts, and 
when he is unmasked, she turns against 
him. Later he finds that his brother is 
barring Miss Roberts' logs from coming 
down the tidewater, in fact, has caused a 
jam by derailing a logging train into the 
raging torrent. Brent hurries to the jam 
site, stirs a hand-to-hand battle between 
lumberjacks of the rival camps, and then, 
at the risk of his life, dynamites the log 
jam, nearly loses his life but wins the girl.

BELOVED ENEMY— (Goldwyn) — A 
story of Irish rebellion at its most feverish 
tempo. Brian Aherne, secret 
leader of the recalcitrants, is 
the subject of an intensive 
search by members of the in- 
telligence corps. On occasions 
he is in their hands, even ad- 
mits his identity, but those 
who would capture the pa- 
triot cannot conceive of his being so auda- 

Brian Aherne and Merle Oberon make BeloYed 

Enemy, a story of Irish rebellion against British 

oppression, a film teeming with revolt and 

romance that grips the imagination 

cious as to confess his real name. Henry 
Stephenson, a British peer is sent to Ire- 
land, accompanied by his daughter, Merle 
Oberon, to survey the situation for the 
British cabinet. She meets Aherne and a 
romance develops through the tragedy of 
the revolution, which involves Aherne's 
betrayal by the girl and his later victory 
for moderation in settling the political 
war, although he knows the compromise he 
makes for the sake of peace will bring 
his own death at the hands of radicals. 

Fine blending of singing and comedy, in 
which Lily Pons soars to new 
heights as a screen celebrity. 
The story is the same as 
Street Girl, one of the first 
talkers to be made by RKO 
and with Betty Compson in 
the role now essayed by Miss 
Pons. Jack Oakie strolls away 
with the comedy honors, much the same 
as he did when he appeared in the earlier 
version, which was far less musical. Gene 
Raymond is believably sincere as the ro- 
mantic band leader, giving one of his best 
performances to date, while Herman Bing 
is a panic as a roadhouse owner. Miss 
Pons is shown as a French opera star run- 
ning away from a loveless marriage. She 
stows away on a New York bound ship 
and is befriended by Raymond, a jazz 
band leader, and his three companions. 
They all get into a jam with the immigra- 
tion agents. They escape, win a roadhouse 
engagement, go to jail and eventually to 
the Metropolitan. 

BLACK LEGION— (Warners)— Stark 
melodrama built around the horrifying 
activities of Michigan's ter- 
ror band, albeit, no commu- 
nity is named, yet the title 
ties it definitely with the news 
sensation of early 1936. 
Humphrey Bogart's film sta- 
ture rises to new heights for 
his compelling and heart- 
stirring portrayal of the leading character. 

Robert Taylor's promise of devotion to Greta 
Garbo in Camille stirs in her a resolve to ex- 
change a gold-digging existence with many men 
for a real romance with just one

WHAT agony Piles! What they impose in 
pain, in mental distress, in loss of per- 
sonal efficiency! 

The sad part about this affliction is that, on 
account of the delicacy of the subject, many 
hesitate to seek relief. Yet there is nothing 
more liable to serious outcome than a bad case 

of Piles 


Real treatment for the relief of distress due to 

Piles is to be had today in Pazo Ointment. Pazo 

almost instantly stops the pain and itching. It 

is effective because it is threefold in effect. 

First, Pazo is soothing, which tends to relieve 
sore and inflamed parts. Second, it is lubricat- 
ing, which tends to soften hard parts and also 
to make passage easy. Third, it is astringent, 
which tends to reduce swollen parts. 

Pazo is put up in Collapsible Tubes with spe- 
cial Pile Pipe, which is perforated. The perforat- 
ed Pile Pipe makes it easy for you to apply the 
Ointment high up in the rectum where it can 
reach and thoroughly cover the affected parts. 

Pazo is now also put up in suppository form. Those 
who prefer suppositories will find Pazo the most satis- 
factory. All drug scores sell Pazo-in-Tubes and Pazo 
Suppositories, but a trial tube will be sent on request.

STOLEN HOLIDAY— (Warners)— Dip- 
ping into the Stavsky pawnshop scandal 
for plot, Stolen Holiday tells 
the love story of Kay Francis 
first as a model and later as 
owner of a swank Parisian 
modiste's shop, and Claude 
Rains, a modern Ponzi, who 
first befriends Miss Francis, 
then sets her up in business, 
and then, when arrest threatens, attempts 
to hide behind her respectability. She is 
forced into a marriage with Rains after 
she has become enmeshed in a romance 
with an Englishman she meets while at 
Geneva on a "stolen holiday." Even the 
marriage fails to save Rains, and he goes 
into seclusion to escape arrest. Kay de- 
cides she owes him something, goes to him, 
is trailed by the law, and when Rains 
steps from his hideout (he says to think 
about his decision with reference to their 
marriage, but really because he has seen 
his hideout surrounded) he is shot down. 
Kay is forced to seal her lips and let the 
law call it a suicide. 

This picture is clothed with regal at- 
mosphere and the styles depicted in Kay's 
Parisian shop will set feminine film goers 
in a dither. Miss Frances never looked 
lovelier than she does in Stolen Holi- 
day. She gives a fine performance, and 
Rains also turns in a portrayal that will 
lift him farther up the ladder of renown. 
Ian Hunter as the other half of the "stolen 
holiday" is convincing, and admirable sup- 
port is provided by Alison Skipworth, 
Alexander D'Arcy and Frank Reicher.

its boxoffice appeal, by and 
large, is a matter of conjec- 
ture. Given an emotional 
content of high voltage, plus 
fine performances by 
Barbara Stanwyck and Preston Foster, 
this is a masterpiece pictorially. Lighting 
is somber and poetic. Dublin's streets 
fairly palpitate with the tragedy of futile 
slaughter that so quickly ended the first 
Irish rebellion. Foster is an officer of the 
rebels and his devotion to the cause tears 
him from Miss Stanwyck, the wife whose 
selfish love and mounting fears inspire her 
hysterical battle to keep him out of fight- 
ing. It is the age old struggle between 
love and duty. In the end, at the risk of 
his life, he returns to her but only to warn

Switching face powders may do 
you an injustice — Make you look years older than you really are! 

How to find your most becoming face powder 

must not assume that because you are a blonde 
or a brunette or a redhead that you must use a 
certain shade. Any artist or make-up expert 
will tell you that. 

You may be a blonde and yet have a very dark 
or olive skin; or a brunette and have a very 
light skin; or vice versa. 

What you want to do is NOT match your 
skin, but improve your appearance. You want, 
NOT a matching shade, but a flattering shade. 

I Say "Try," not "Buy" 

In my five shades I provide the most becoming 
one for you. What it is neither I, nor anyone 
else, can tell you in advance. You must try on 
all five shades. 

But I don't ask you to go into a store and buy 
all five shades of Lady Esther Face Powder. No, 
indeed! I say: "Here, take all the five shades 
of my face powder and try them all on ! Let 
your own eyes tell you which is your most 
becoming shade." 


Decide today to make this telling face powder 
test. Mail the coupon below and by return mail 
you'll receive all five shades of Lady Esther 
Face Powder. Try on all five shades. 

Notice that one shade will instantly declare it- 
self the one for you. Notice, too, how smooth my 
face powder is, how long it stays on and how well 
it prevents shine. One test will tell you volumes! 

The coupon below waits your mailing ! 

Do you try one face powder this month and an- 
other the next? Do you choose face powder 
because this girl or that uses it? What may look 
good on one girl may look bad on another. 

Hit-or-miss methods of selecting your face 
powder, or your shade of face powder, put you 
at a great disadvantage. It means you have one 
complexion one day and another the next. It 
calls attention to your make-up all the time. 

If the shade you happen to choose is the 
wrong one, it makes you look years older than 
you really are. What you want, first of all, is 
the right kind of face powder. Secondly, the 
right shade. 

No. 1. The Right Kind 

of Face Powder 

A face powder must be soft. It must be smooth 

— absolutely smooth. Only a smooth powder 

will go on evenly and blend perfectly. 

Only a smooth powder will act as a blotter 
on the skin. It is the blotter-like qualities of 
face powder that absorb excessive oil and per- 
spiration and prevent shine. 

Lady Esther Face Powder is soft — extremely 
soft and smooth. It contains no rough or sharp 
particles whatever. This you can prove by my 
famous "bite test." 

Because it is so smooth, Lady Esther Face 
Powder goes on evenly and blends perfectly. 
It also acts as a blotter on the skin. 
It absorbs the excessive oil and 
perspiration that causes that hated 

No. 2. The Right Shade 

First, the right powder — then the 
right shade! 

There is only one way to tell which 
is your most becoming shade and that 
is to try on all five basic shades. You

GREEN LIGHT— (Cosmopolitan) — 
Dignified acid forceful treatment of the 
theme of spiritual power as 
a way of life is presented in 
Green Light, which gives you 
Errol Flynn in ' his first ci- 
vilian clothes role. Flynn's 
stock should soar appreci- 
ably when his fans see him 
in this masterly depiction of 
the power of spirit to triumph over ad- 
versity and the master of unbridled pas- 
sions in matters close to life — and death. 
Flynn, a young surgeon, is wrongfully 
accused in the death of a woman patient 
when an older doctor, played by Henry 
O'Neill, hasn't the courage to take the 
blame. Flynn resigns. Fate puts in 
Flynn's path the daughter of the woman 
who died on the operating table. The girl, 
Anita Louise, loves Flynn, who has been 
introduced under another name by the 
nurse, Margaret Lindsay, who loves 
Flynn and saw the fatal slip of O'Neill that 
caused the patient to die. A minister, 
played by Sir Cecil Hardwicke, whose phi- 
losophy is love against hatred, helps to 
smooth the path for all. Flynn eventually 
joins Walter Abel, a former hospital asso- 
ciate, in a search for a vaccine, or serum 
to combat spotted fever in a certain Mon-

eventually wins love, respect and a better

Paradox in Personality! 

(Continued from page thirty) 

Being intelligently unconventional, she 
feels, "Why shouldn't I do the things I 
want to do? It's my life, isn't it? 

"For example," she says, "I get great 
pleasure in making noise. I sometimes 
scream just to listen to my screams." Have 
you ever heard a person, probably your 
best girl, say "Oh, I could just scream"? 
Instead of saying that, Doris up and does it. 

She dates her screaming from the time 
it saved her life. Doris is one of those 
bold Irish characters who can't pass up a 
dare. She always plunges into the adven- 
turous and thrilling for the sheer wallop 
of it When she was a kid of four years, 
another neighborhood breadsnatcher 
dared her to eat a fire-works sulphur 
snake. She ate it, and the shrieks im- 
mediately following were shrill enough to 
summon a doctor in time to pump out her 
stomach and save her life. 

To show what kind of a girl Doris really 
is, we must hear how she achieved star- 
dom. She didn't waltz gently into the 
endearing arms of fame. Only a year ago 
she had made one unsuccessful invasion 
of Hollywood and had to drive her mother 
and her dog back to New York City in a 
puddle-jumper of ancient vintage. She 
had on a blouse and a pair of slacks at the 
time of that inglorious departure, when 
she determined she would never again 
enter the movie capital until stage success 
led movie moguls to demand her. 

She had come to Hollywood on a six- 
months contract with the former Fox 
studios, made after her performance in 
the stage play, His Majesty, Christopher 
Bean, shortly after her graduation from a 
New York high school in 1933. During 
that half-year she had the opportunity to 
do absolutely nothing in pictures. 

Stage Work Wins 

She did one thing for herself, though. 
As the feminine lead in Daughter of Cain 
at a small Hollywood community play- 
house she attracted the eye of Al H. 
Woods, New York stage producer, who 
told her that if she would come to him in 
New York she could have a part in The 
Night of January 16th. 

After her flivver hegira back to the big 
city this unspoiled young beauty won the 
lead in January 16th, going over with such 
a wow that every studio in Hollywood 
began clamoring for her. The lure of the 
cinema proved too much even for her 
memory of the six months of floundering, 
so she came back to Hollywood, and this 
time to stardom. 

A place in the film constellation has not 
inflated Doris' head to a balloon-like 
status. Far from it. The studios have 
doubles for all big stars, to do dangerous 
assignments and avoid possible injury or 
even inconvenience to the big names. In 
the super-musical extravaganza Top of 
the Town there is a scene where Doris' 
stand-in was ordered to make a forty-five 
foot leap from a fire-ravaged building into 
a net held by Hugh Herbert, Gregory 
Ratoff, Henry Armetta and George 

Would this glamorous Hollywood star 
stand aside and treat someone else to such 
a special thrill? Not on your life! The 
director and the technicians pleaded. They 
stormed. They threatened. Doris held 
firm and declared she would do it, or else. 

With the comedians who held the net 

Surfboard time at the beach. Here Doris 
Nolan, who mixes plenty of exercise with her 
histrionics, is contemplating a dip in the sea 

for the scene shuddering in fear, she 
calmly made the leap. The director in- 
formed her she would have to do it half a 
dozen times to make a perfect shot. 
"O. K.," she said, and did it half a dozen 

This is just like Doris, a young lady who 
is as natural as a wild tree or a wave 
rolling in from the sea. She would rather 
go to a boxing match than to one of Holly- 
wood's elaborate parties. Perhaps her 
favorite diversion is to sit home and read 
a good book, "to improve my mind," she 

Part of this realness in Doris takes ex- 
pression in her Irish temper. "I can re- 
member one terribly funny incident," she 
relates, then laughs and laughs. "During 
a play in which I was acting there was a 
publicity man who constantly bothered 
me to pose for 'gag shots.' Finally, bull- 
dog tenacity and all, he sought me in my 
dressing room. I lost no time seizing the 
chair I had been sitting in and hurling it 
at him." Her eyes twinkle as she adds. 
"He bothered me no more." 

Her rapidly-flaring temper always cools 
as quickly as it comes. "Then I laugh at 

Accept No Substitutes! Always Insist on the Advertised Brand! 

whatever antics my rage inspired," she 

Getting Doris out to a formal gathering 
is a real accomplishment. Even when she 
goes, she refuses to stiffen. Her feeling 
about conceited persons who are always 
"putting on the dog" is quite strong. 
"Maybe I better not say the word, though," 
she says. 

As a girl she used to put on her brother's 
dirtiest sweater and go bicycling. Now 
this has grown into her beloved sport of 
horseback riding. She leans back on her 
hands, shakes her blonde tresses and looks 
at the tree tops as she says, "Riding is to 
me the most glorious fun in the world." 
Another sport she prefers to Hollywood's 
famous parties is just lazily lounging. 

Have you ever played Hell? It is Doris 
Nolan's favorite game. In case you don't 
know, it is a form of double solitaire. Doris 
prefers it because "it's called Hell even in 
polite circles and you can scream your 
lungs out when you play it. That's some- 

Doris has a delightful hobby which 
sometimes puts her on the spot. She in- 
variably bursts out singing Christmas 
carols, many of which she makes up while 
warbling. She has sold more than a 
hundred poems and songs, and has also 
written numerous essays and short pieces 
to express her thoughts on people and 
things. Her weakness for Christmas carols 
she ascribes to sentimentality. 

Once in New York she waltzed down 
Broadway singing one of her own favorite 
Christmas carols to herself. A crowd as- 
sembled when a policeman stopped her. 
She protested her right to sing what and 
where she wanted to. 

Promise Wins Reprieve 

The law's minion let her go on her 
promise to refrain from further carolings. 
"That was the first time in my life I was 
repressed," she states. 

What about the marital intentions of 
this luminous beauty who has Holly- 
wood's masculine eyes blazing? "Not for 
five years," she insists, stating that she 
will try hard to build a career before she 
considers wedlock. 

"Furthermore, no man could live with 
me." At this she whoops her loudest 
laugh. But she means it, for before 
making such an alliance she intends to get 
her diploma from the School of Experi- 
ence. While she is studying in that, the 
only college she would consider, she seeks 
men for their intelligence and ability to 
carry a fascinating conversation rather 
than for their good looks or their romantic 

"Of course, if I met the man," she stated 
in answer to a question, "I would forget 
these ideas and do what any other woman 
would." Even in that case she does not 
intend to drop her career. A life of per- 
sonal accomplishment, to her, need not be 
cut short by wedlock. 

Only a superior man, stronger and more 
dominant than she, will be able to win the 
hand whose backing in beauty and class 
has caused many Hollywood masculine 
hearts to surge more vigorously. "But if 
he tried to repress or unreasonably dom- 
inate me," she asserted, kiddingly, lapsing 
into slang, "I'd sock him on the puss." 

Watch Doris Nolan. She is Irish and 
high-tempered and will say what she 
thinks when she thinks it. A hard worker, 
she is determined to succeed because she 
loves the motion picture art. She can be 
glamorous, musical, tragic or funny before 
the camera. Those who know in Holly- 
wood will tell you that although la Nolan 
is a sprout in years, she's tops in pictures.

State of Mind!

to itself. That was when its area was 
fixed and bounded. 

It wasn't much of a place. It had about 
700 inhabitants, all told, and the vote 
on incorporation was 88 to 78. It was 
pretty well isolated. One or two rambling 
roads connected it with the city. 

The new town's main stem was not 
called Hollywood Boulevard then; it was 
Prospect Avenue. It was unpaved; in 
summer it was oiled to keep down the 
profuse dust, and in winter it was a quag- 
mire. Sunset, lined with over-arching 
pepper trees, was a slumbrous residence 
street a few blocks south. On the avenue 
were some spacious residences — those of 
Whitley, Wilcox, Beveridge, Hurd, Bart- 
lett, being most notable. The Stern 
orange grove had a good home in it; part 
of the grove still lives as a memorial to 
its founder. A few small stores catered 
to local trade in primitive fashion; sev- 
eral diminutive churches administered 
to the communal spiritual welfare and 
the town was very proud of its sole high 
school, one two-story building. 

There wasn't a theatre in the place, nor 
a club nor a saloon. One hotel — The 
Hollywood — the east end only of that very 
prominent hostelry now so central — 
served all the needs of the wayfarer, and 
at that was mostly given over to family 
life. Now and then were decorous dances 
there, and on some Sunday evenings, 
Carrie Jacobs Bond, then unknown to 
much fame, played and sang her homey 
songs in the lobby for the entertainment 
of the guests. Folks rose early, for the 
trip to business in the city was long and 
arduous, and .they retired early, for there 
was little else to do. 

As early-day residents or visitors 
trekked back to homes or inn, they always 
stopped at the front door, took down the 
inevitable feather duster that was hang- 
ing at the knob, and carefully dusted 
off their shoes before they stepped over 
the sill! It was an old Hollywood cus- 
tom — not to say an odd one. But very 
saving on carpets. 

A slow-going community? It was — but 
a very prosperous one. One of the big 
citrus centers of the Southland; that and 
market gardening were the almost ex- 
clusive industries, though sheep roved the 
hills. These very industries were the in- 
herent cause of Hollywood's elimination 
as a city, however, and the greater they 
became, the more inevitable the doom 
they faced. 

You see, citrus growing demands a lot 
of water, and so does the raising of garden 
truck. Also, the more householders, the 
greater the requirements in the same 
field. As Hollywood's production rose, 
and as population grew, and the long, 
hot summers made still heavier demands 
upon the rather primitive water supply 
available at best, it became increasingly 
inevitable that provision be made for 
added water, or the town would perish. 

Los Angeles generously offered to 
share its wealth with its neighbors. But 
only on condition that they amalgamate 
with it. Otherwise, stay out and dry up. 

Hollywood listened to the Lorelei song; 
heeded the call to "come on in; the water's 
fine," and in 1910, leaped from freedom 
and a brief municipal existence of seven 
years into the lap of the Queen of the

SKINNY Folks Have Made This Amazing Discovery! 

Get Kelpamalt's Natural Iodine into Your Blood and Glands — 
Then . . . These Results Quick or Your Money Back 

Improved Appetite, Better Digestion, 5 

Extra New Lbs., Clearer Skin, 

Sounder Sleep, New Strength, 

Energy and Endurance 

If you are weak, skinny and rundown — If you go around 
always tired out, irritable, easily upset, the chances are 
your blood Is thin, pale and watery, and lacks the nourish- 
ment needed to build up your strength, endurance, and the 
solid pounds of new flesh you need to feel right. Science 
has at last got right down and found one of the very 
frequent causes of these conditions, and explains a new, 
quick way to correct them. 

Food and medicines often can't help you much. The 
average person usually eats enough of the right kind of 
food to sustain the body. The real trouble is assimilation 
— the body's process of converting digested food into firm 
flesh, pep and energy. Tiny hidden glands control this 
body building process — glands which must have a regular 
ration of natural plant iodine all the time. The simplest 
and quickest way to get this precious needed substance is 
Seedol Kelpamalt. the astonishing new mineral concentrate 
from the sea, which has been found to be many times 
richer in natural iodine than oysters. 

Try Seedol Kelpamalt for one week. See if, like thousands 
of others, you don't feel better, sleep better, eat better, 
and add at least 3 to 5 husky new lbs. the first week. If 
you don't the trial is free. It costs you nothing. Your 
own doctor will approve this way. 100 Jumbo size Seedol 
Kelpamalt Tablets — four to five times the size of ordinary 
tablets — cost but a few cents a day to use. Get Seedol 
Kelpamalt today. Seedol Kelpamalt is sold at all good drug 

stores. If your dealer has not yet received his supply, 
send $1-00 for special introductory size bottle of 65 tablets 
to the address below. 

• Manufacturer's Note: — Inferior products, sold as kelp 
and malt preparations — in Imitation of the genuine 
Seedol Kelpamalt — are being offered as substitutes. The 
Kelpamalt Company will reward for information covering 
any case where an imitation product has been represented

guaranteed or money back.

DeI "- ^ 1c POST CARD 


Angels, where she has remained a favored 
child ever since. She went wet, in other 
words, and she went out of civic existence 
at the same time. 

But not out of mind — or vocabulary. 
The populace still used the old familiar 
name to designate the locality that origi- 
nally bore it. The trolleys carried it on 
their signs — and still do. The boulevard 
adopted it, instead of Prospect. The 
former townsite and much contiguous 
territory clung to the mellifluous and 
well liked name, and does so till this day. 
But it has no official, civic or legal status 
whatever, and hasn't had since 1910. 

Now, it is generally believed that Los 
Angeles absorbed Hollywood as the result 
of the latter becoming the cinema cen- 
ter. This is all wrong. Not a movie had 
ever been made in Hollywood during all 
its official Life, but the big city had had 
studios for years. Los Angeles was the 
capital of the movies in real fact, and 
seemed destined forever to be so. 

Perhaps, however, the metropolis did 
not sufficiently appreciate the cinema. 
Too many could not see what value there 
was to a community in an industry that 
was simply making shadow shapes flit 
by on a canvas in a nickelodeon. It was 
all so childish; so puerile. The participants 
in the filming were only tolerated; the 
old gag about the boarding house sign: 
"No dogs or actors wanted" was far more 
truth than fiction. The city was zoned, 
and only in certain out of the way sec- 
tions could the huge but hideous studios 
rear their ugly heads. Hospitality toward 
them and all their ilk was nil, and hos- 
tility was usual. 

So it was that in 1911, when the Horsley 
brothers were enroute to the coast to 
establish their own plant, they learned 
from a fellow traveler that irf what had 
been Hollywood was a virgin field — about 
the only one left — for their purpose. Di- 
rectly from their train they drove out 
there, looked over the land, liked it. So 
they established Hollywood's first movie 
studio, in the old Blondeau tavern and 
stable at Sunset Boulevard and Gower 
Streets. They rented it; they were offered 
the entire block for $1.25 a front foot, 
but had been warned by others to "beware 
of Los Angeles land slickers," and they 
didn't purchase! 

That, good people, was the beginning of 
the cinema industry in Hollywood. Only, 
it was no longer the town of Hollywood; 
that died the year the movies came to it. 

Now in actuality the main factors of the 
picture industry no longer are to be found 
within the erstwhile "capital" or its origi- 
nal limits, and never were. Some of their 
former headquarters still stand, gaunt and 
vacant; still others make up "poverty 
row;" mechanical and technical plants and 
costume and wardrobe housings. But as 
a picture producing center, what was so 
briefly actually Hollywood has faded al- 
most from import. Just to keep the record 
clear: No movie was ever made in the 
town of Hollywood, for it was part of Los 
Angeles before the first studio came to it. 

So— There is no such place as Holly- 
wood. It is only a state of mind. It is 
merely a generic term for an indefinite 
locale — an entity that has neither shape, 
boundaries, form nor substance. Con- 
cretely, it simply "isn't." 

But whoever thinks of pictures without 
coupling them with Hollywood? 

Whoever speaks of the movies without 
also talking of Hollywood? 

Whoever imagines that there can or 
could or will or would be a cinema with- 
out Hollywood as its locale and its capital'

Stickler for Realism 

Dear Editor: 

Swing Time was a sensation, but I have on 
ment to make in regard to it. 

Why do the directors insist on orchestral . 
paniment in certain scenes, such as the wintry scene 
in which Ginger Rogers and Fred As t aire sang 
A Fine Romance? They could have gotten along 
beautifully without it. 

To my estimation, this ornamental accompani- 
ment, especially in out-of-door scenes such as the 
one mentioned above, makes the scenes less realistic 
while we "movie goers" wish them to be just as 
true to life as possible. 

I'm sure other fans will agree with me in this

Too Good? 

Dear Editor: 

Why can't Shirley Temple portray a naughty girl 
for a change? It seems too unreal to see her, pic- 
ture after picture, as a good little girl. 

Why can't we see her as a mean child, who neither 
sings or dances? 

She'd gain even more popularity than she has 
now, I assure you. Readers — how about your

of the erratic, ever-changing scheme of a

Fred doesn't care for big parties or 
public social affairs. So the Astaires live 
quietly in their lovely Beverly Hills home, 
entertaining and being entertained by a 
small circle of close and congenial friends. 
Fred enjoys tennis matches and football

them too. Only rarely does she visit the

look after their home and to take care of 
their two children.

She has built her entire life around John

• Rita Beery, the beautiful blonde wife 
of Wallace, was a bit player, beginning a 
promising career in pictures, when she 
met Wally on the Robin Hood set, where 
Wally was playing the burly Richard, the 
Lion Hearted. Their courtship was brief 
and ardent. Without a qualm of regret 
Rita gave up her own ambitions and settled 
down to being just a wife. She has left 
no stone unturned to make her marriage 
a success. 

Although her heart turns flipflops with 
fear when Wally sets forth on one of his 
transcontinental airplane dashes, Rita 
never makes the faintest objection. Shs 
spends long weeks with him in their cabin 
built on an island in a clear blue lake in 
the High Sierras. When Wally wanted 
children, Rita, whose greatest regret has 
been that they have no youngsters of their 
own, agreed eagerly to the adoption of 
little Carol Anne, who is the apple of 
Wally's eye. Happily and wholeheartedly 
Rita devoted her time and energy to the 
mothering and rearing of the small baby 

The dark-haired Bella Muni, like Rita 
Beery, gave up a promising career to share

terest in life is Paul's work. When he is 
preparing for a role in a picture, Paul 
thinks, dreams, talks and studies the 
character for weeks. And Bella thinks, 
dreams, talks and studies it with him. 
Before he began work in Louis Pasteur, 
Bella and he read countless volumes de-

Elizabeth Allen, too, was a successful 
young actress on Broadway when she met 
and married the promising young actor, 
Robert Montgomery. When Bob received 
an offer to go to Hollywood with the first 
talking pictures, Betty gave up her career 
and went with him to California where she 
has devoted herself to Bob and his home 
and his children. For a long time Betty 
refused even to be photographed, ex- 
plaining that it was Bob's career and that 
she was content to remain in the back- 
ground. Although she finally removed 
the ban on pictures, she still maintains her 
quiet inconspicuousness and rarely goes 
to the studio. 

She has encouraged Bob in his athletic 
sports which he enjoys, tennis, golf and 
polo. She has shared his desire for an 
eastern farm and a rural life. 

Like Betty and Bella and the others, 
Florence Eldridge March gave up a suc- 
cessful theatrical and picture career to 
play second fiddle to Fred in his. Florence 
was already well established in Hollywood 
when Fred made his first California ap- 
pearance in the Los Angeles stage produc- 
tion of The Royal Family. He immediately 
attracted the attention of the motion pic- 
ture producers and was signed for the 
leading role in the picturization of the 

As soon as Fred was firmly entrenched 
in Hollywood, Florence retired from the 
screen and stage. 

Lead Full, Rich Lives 

The Marches live a full, rich, well-bal- 
anced life. Florence has her home and 
her two adopted children and her many 
friends to fill the days when Fred is busy. 
She and Fred both enjoy gay parties and 
they are numbered among Hollywood's 
most popular people. Never has Florence 
regretted her retirement from professional 

"Housekeeping, wifehood and mother- 
hood are a big enough career for any one 
woman," she says, smiling. 

Dixie Lee Crosby says the same thing. 
She, too, sacrificed her own professional 
career to become the wife of the crooning 
Bing and the mother of his three sons. 
Only once did Dixie feel the urge to return 
to the screen. But one film was enough. 
Gladly She went back to her domesticity 
and Bing and the babies. Like Frances 
Dee, who is devoting her life to Joel 
McCrea and their children, Dixie believes 
that happiness and contentment are more 
important than all the stardoms and fame 
in the world. 

There you have the secret of Holly- 
wood's happiest marriages. The success- 
ful wives are the ones who have made 
marriage a job, a career, a profession in 
itself, who have worked at it with un- 
selfish energy, who have given it thought 
and careful attention. 

Other wives may drift in and out of 
marriage, while they build fame and 
success for themselves, but Hollywood's 
wise wives are content. Each knows she 
has something more priceless than fame — 
happiness, a home and a husband she

She is the girl who is careless about herself; who has allowed

(Continued from iiiik'c twenty-three) 

the colored slides. A German waiter in a 
restaurant came up to him and said, "Mr. 
Grauman, that fat fella has a great bari- 
tone voice." He was Roscoe Arbuckle, 
noted in the Santa Clara county seat for 
his exploit of carrying 12 mugs of beer in 
one hand. 

Arbuckle was told, "bring your music 
to my theatre." Sid gave him a job 
singing songs illustrated with colored 
slides, paying him $1 per night plus tips 
and dinner at the beer hall. After watching 
Fatty Arbuckle eat once, the master show- 
manship which has made Grauman great 
came to the fore. 

He made a deal with the owner of a 
Greek restaurant whereby Arbuckle 
would be treated to a free dinner in the 
eatery's show-window. A sign there would 
advertise "see him at Grauman's Unique 
theatre tonight." The Arbuckle gastro- 
nomical capacity was banked upon to give 
the Greek his share of advertisement. 

It was a bonanza both for Sid and the 
restauranteur. Crowds jammed in front 
of the cafe to watch this Gargantua devour 
his huge meals. Unable to get standing 
room for the show outside, they crammed 
the interior and made the Greek proprietor 
rich. Arbuckle's fame spread like the 
wind and the San Jose show-house was 
stampeded at night for a view of this 
human colossus with a dinosaur's appe- 
tite. His singing was good too. 

Some years later Joseph Schenck was 
paying the corpulent comedian $5,000 
weekly to make the film world laugh. 

Having already started many future 
Hollywood stars rolling on their constella- 
tion careers, Grauman was interested in 
this center of a rising industry, the future 
of which he was far-sighted enough to see. 

The young showman boarded the band- 
wagon of destiny and took a troupe of 
one hundred to Los Angeles to present his 
opus, Midnight on the Ba.rba.ry Coast. 
Twenty years ago, financially backed by 
his father, he designed and opened the 
then elaborate Grauman's Million Dollar 
Theatre. All the wise guys pooh-ed that 
the venture would flop. 

Here Grauman initiated a practice which 
has solidified the careers of many popular 
favorites. Sid sponsored the first personal 
appearances, bringing out the vita.1 im- 
portance and far-ranging effect of directly 
introducing to theatre fans performers 
whose antics on the silver sheet induced 
such thrills and emotional reactions. 

When Sid and his father had been enter- 
taining in San Francisco one of their acts 
was by the woman later to be Mrs. Frank 
Borzage teamed with a Lillian Golliver. 
One day in the lobby of the Million Dollar 
Grauman met this Lillian Golliver again. 
She had married and her little family was 
now down-and-out. With her was her 
little waif, Jackie Coogan. 

Sir Sid patted the four-year-old and 
asked, "What can he do?" 

"Do The Shooting of Dan McCrew for 
Mr. Grauman," requested the mother. 

He did it so perfectly that Grauman and 
his mother were lost in the rapture of his 
performance. Next he did Kid's Last Fight. 
They were so engrossed that when the 
little act was finished Jackie, his mother, 
. and his discoverer were astounded at a 
huge crowd which was now applauding 

Believing the youngster sensational, Sir 
Sid lost no time taking him to the lobby

of the Alexandria Hotel to see Charlie 
Chaplin. His antics drew a huge mass of 
spectators. Commenting on the crowd, 
Grauman hazarded, "the kid's great." 

Chaplin immediately followed: "The 
Kid! That will be my next picture's title. 
I'll use little Coogan." 

It was at his Egyptian and Chinese 
theatres in Hollywood that Sid Grauman 
brought his prologues to their highest 
pitch. For The Ten Commandments he 
staged The Last Supper. Two full-sized 
locomotives were brought to the center of 
the stage under full steam for The Iro?i 

His most spectacular was undoubtedly 
The Covered Wagon, for which he brought 
100 Arapahoe and Shoshone Indians to 
Hollywood. When they expressed a desire 
to live out in the open he built them an 
Indian village in the outskirts of Holly- 

To bolster this he decided to stage an 
Indian wedding. Borrowing Hoot Gibson's 
$25,000 horse, he got Marion Davies to 
present it to the groom. But after the 
event he could not wrest the equine from 
the redskin. Sid explained it was merely 
a publicity stunt. The Indian resolutely 
replied, "me want horse." 

It cost Grauman $250 to placate the

stars, is and has been an intimate friend 
of Hollywood's outstanding stars and pro- 
ducers. Among the hands and footprints 
stamped for posterity in the concrete fore-

will give him immortality in the Valhalla

formance and I was frantic. We had no 
understudy and there were no actresses 
in the town whom I could call upon. Then 
suddenly it occurred to me that Lillian 
could play it. Of course, she hit the ceil- 
ing when I told her — she was scared to 
death and she kept on saying, 'Please, May, 
I'll do anything in the world for you but 
don't ask me to act! I couldn't! I know 
I couldn't! I'll faint!' But she didn't faint 
and she didn't have stage fright. I coached 
her all afternoon and that night she went 
on and was a success. She was so good 
in the part that she continued in it until 
the end of the run. After that I wouldn't 
take a part in any play that didn't have a 
part in if for her. But how loyal she was! 
I used to beg her to make acting her main 
career and to give up this other work that 
she was doing for me. But she wouldn't 
hear of it. She said her job with me came 
first. And I guess it does to this day. She 
could do many more parts in pictures now. 
except that she won't accept one unless 
she's sure that I won't need her." 

And since loyalty is only as great as the 
person who inspires it . . . now you may 
better understand the kind of person May 
Robson is! 

Named By Program Error 

But not only does she personally win 
every one who comes into close contact 
with her — for audiences too, she has al- 
ways had that same kind of magnet- 
appeal. For fifty-four years she has been 
one of the most beloved figures on stage 
and screen. Her career began in the sum- 
mer of 1883. She was Mary Robinson then, 
but her first part was unimportant, so 
unimportant that they did not even bother 
to get her right name on the program and 
she was listed, wrongly, as May Robson. 
An old trouper suggested that it was a 
good luck omen, and that she should take 
the name for her own. Something else 
happened in connection with that first per- 
formance to forever distinguish it in May's 
memory book. "In those days we didn't 
have dress rehearsals as we know them 
now. Today costumes are as important as 
lines and there are usually many dress re- 
hearsals, but costumes were never planned 
then and no one knew what anyone was 
wearing until that one dress rehearsal be- 
fore the play opened. I played the part 
of a chambermaid. I came to the theatre 
that night, wearing old clothes, borrowed 
from the janitor's wife, carrying a mop 
and pail, and made up to look as horrible 
as possible. I had spent a lot of time on 
my make-up; I was very proud of it; and 
as it turned out I received the grandest 
compliment anyone could pay me. The 
rehearsal had started, but I didn't know it. 
I wanted something from the other side 
of the stage so I ambled across to get it. 
Then suddenly I heard Charles Frohman 
shouting from out front: 'Tell that woman 
with the pail to get out and stay out. We're 
working here!' When he discovered that 
I was a member of the cast, and not the 
theatre's scrub woman, he was delighted 
and from that day on spread the word that 
I was one of the theatre's finest character

for years she went from one success to 
another. They are all chronicled in her 
scrap book ... 22 volumes in all, so you 
can imagine that there were quite a num- 
ber of them. 

Her real movie debut came years later 
of course. She appeared in many early 
silents, but she had her biggest success 
in Lady For a Day. made at Columbia 
in 1933. 

Incidentally, that not only played an im- 
portant part in her career, but it boosted 
the careers of everyone connected with it. 
There was Jean Parker, and Walter 
Connolly, both newcomers to the screen. 
And there was the new director-writer 
team behind it, Frank Capra and Bob 
Riskin, who from that moment on rose 
rapidly to fame. 

It was a turning point for the studio 
too. It made so much money that for 
the first time Columbia was encouraged 
to compete with the bigger studios in 
making Class A pictures. Recently when 
May went back to Columbia to make 
Woman in Distress, and saw a brand 
new dressing room building on the lot, 
she smiled happily and said, "It makes 
me so proud to think that my picture 
helped build that building!" And this 
again shows her deep sentimentality. 

Naturally it is difficult to tell even the 
highlights of her career — a career that has 
lasted over half a century — in one brief 

And it's difficult too, to tell of the 
woman, over a period of seventy-three 
years, but at least the woman is pretty 
completely revealed in her philosophy of 
life. It's an amazing philosophy, amazing 
in its sincerity and amazing in its brief- 

"I just try to be as those who love me 
think I am," she says simply. And with 
so many loving her, you can imagine that 
that's quite a large order. But there have 
never been any complaints — and there 
never will be!

to clear, smooth skin. 

"No" Girl In "Yes" Town! 

(Continued from page thirty-. me) 

MANY skin authorities urge thorough soap 
and water cleansing, at least once a 
day, as an essential to real skin beauty. But 
the soap must be carefully selected to suit 
various types of skin, and Resinol Soap is 
preferred in many homes. Free from harsh, 
drying qualities, it gives a soft lather, pleas- 
ing even to tender skin, and leaves the pores 
deeply cleansed and refreshed. 

Before applying Resinol Ointment to relieve 
the itching an soreness of pimply spots, a 
local rash or common skin outbreak, bathe 
the parts with Resinol Soap and v/arm water. 
It helps the soothing Resinol medication to 
act more effectively and promote healing. 

All druggists sell Resinol Ointment and 
Soap. Why not begin this skin care today?

changed. While other girls were thinking 
of party dresses and parties, of dates with 
good-looking, young high school lads, 
Frances was too busy reading to be dis- 
turbed. That was during the depression, 
if you will remember that we had such 
a thing a few years back. It was a great 
time for one with a socially inclined mind 
to get a start in the art of thinking. The 
newspapers were full of distressing news, 
every block in every city had its own 
story of poverty and privation, joblessness 
was the order of the day. Only a few years 
before there had been such happiness. 
There were no sheriffs putting people out 
of houses. The newspapers carried only 
good news. The jobless man was un- 
known. A person capable of deep think- 
ing, even a very young person, couldn't 
help but notice the difference. 

Earns 'Kay Through School 

By this time Frances Farmer was start- 
ing her college career at the University of 
Washington. . She wanted to help, so she 
earned her way through school. Working 
at different jobs, she still had time to keep 
up with the trend of current events. She 
still could burn the midnight oil over the 
books on sociology and correlated works 
on history and economics. She could find 
time for all this, but there was no time 
for sorority invitations, for the frivolous 
parties that are a part and parcel of al- 
most every college career. 

Just when Frances decided to become an 
actress is not clear. Such decisions are 
not usually of the minute variety. They 
are the kind that start with a very small 
seed and grow slowly, usually over a long 
period of years. Yet, when she entered 
the University of Washington, she knew 
in her own mind that she would be an 
actress. Not a movie actress! Such a 
thing was farthest from her mind. She 
could think only of a life on the legitimate 
stage, with great portrayals that would 
live down through time, as the portrayals 
of Bernhardt, Duse, and other great artists 
have lived. She knew this would take 
study. Yet it fitted so well into the things 
she liked to read. The drama was so closely 
allied to life itself, and life in that day 
was one great big drama. 

The Farmer girl worked in a cafe. She 
ushered in a theatre. She tutored less 
diligent students. She coached student 
players in dramatic work. She acted in 
unimportant radio plays on small stations. 
And, as if this were not enough, she got 
her own practical experience taking part 
in the campus Little Theatre productions. 

Problem Quickly Solved 

What to do after graduation was a prob- 
lem that was quickly solved. Frances was 
dead set on getting to New York to em- 
bark upon her stage career. Her family 
was just as dead set against such a move. 
They gave her neither encouragement nor 
help, feeling that it would be best for her 
to stay close to the family fireside in 

Like many young college students of 
the day. Frances read the radical news- 
papers. Somehow they are almost in- 
variably found on a campus. One such 
Seattle paper was conducting an essay 
contest to determine the- Most Marriage- 

Frances Farmer and her mother, Mrs. Lillian V. 
Farmer, who came to Hollywood to see her 
daughter after the former had climbed from 
a young college graduate to film renown all 
in a few months of activity before the camera 

able Girl in the Slate oj Washington. The 
prize was a trip to Moscow, with all ex- 
penses paid. With little effort, Frances 
Farmer won the contest and with the 
transportation tickets and her incidental 
expense money in her purse, she told her 
family that she was leaving. There were 
plenty of misgivings. The departure wasn't 
a particularly happy one. The family, in 
short, did not approve. Frances went any- 

Speaks of Scoffers 

"There are always the scoffers," Frances 
smiles in remembrance of her departure 
from the home town. "Not only my 
parents and an aunt of mine, but some 
other people in Seattle tried to steer me 
from taking a singing job in a string of 
Seattle cafes, and when I left Seattle to take 
advantage of an opportunity to see Europe, 
they fought against that too." 

The trip to Moscow was really a stepping 
stone on the road to New York and Holly- 
wood. It was a devious route, to be sure, 
but New York was the place she most 
wanted to be and if she had to go there 
via Russia and the other countries of 
Europe, that was okay, too. Also, this trip 
would give her a chance to study the Rus- 
sian theatre, then so much under discus- 
sion, and to look into the progress of 
drama in the older countries across the 
ocean. Yet,' as the trains of Europe plunged 
her from one country to another, her mind 
was always busy with thoughts of the op- 
portunities awaiting her on Broadway. 

The principal reason that Frances 
Farmer is in pictures today is that she 
made no secret of her stage ambitions. She 
could talk of her plans by the hour and 
to any audience. That was how, on ship- 
board en route to the United States from 
Europe, she made the acquaintance of 
someone who was fascinated by her de- 
termination. This person was so fasci- 
nated, in fact, that he arranged an ap-

pointment for her to meet Shepard Traube, 
the Broadway theatrical producer. 

It just so happened that at that particu- 
lar time there was practically nothing 
doing in legitimate production. But 
Traube, like the shrewd theatrical man he 
is reputed to be, could see in this earnest 
young woman the flair of genius which 
more recently has come to life in a big way 
in Samuel Goldwyn's Come and Get It. 
He saw here not only a very beautiful 
young female, but a woman of fine mental 
caliber, a woman destined to stand out 
from the crowd. And people of such in- 
dividualistic traits and makings are a 
treasure which only a man of great 
theatrical experience can really appre- 

Traube didn't want to see this promising 
young woman go back to Seattle, and pos- 
sibly to oblivion. He wanted to see her do 
something in keeping with her talents. So 
he argued with her about the desirability 
of trying pictures. Frances Farmer didn't 
like that. Her heart was set on the stage. 
Yet with the stage practically deserted 
there was only one thing to do. She fol- 
lowed Traube's advice. 

And, accompanied by the sage theatrical 
producer, she called at the big Paramount 
building on Broadway between Forty- 
third and Forty-fourth streets, the same 
building, incidentally, in which this maga- 
zine has its New York offices. They went 
to the suite which houses the eastern 
talent scouts, those canny gentlemen who 
look hither and yon for faces that have a 
mass appeal, for figures that can intrigue 
the audiences of the world, for voices that 
have that something that other voices do 

not have. This critical audience of ex- 
perts sensed what Traube had sensed. 
They wanted her to take a screen test. 

What would most girls have said to such 
a proposal? Well, Frances Farmer said: 
"No!" Not to be arrogant, you must under- 
stand, but because she felt that she wasn't 
ready. She knew that this was a mo- 
mentous time in her life. She was at a 
crossroads and to make a mistake now 
might ruin the lifetime she had so care- 
fully and so hopefully planned. To miss 
now might be to lose everything. She 
told the talent scouts she would take the 
screen test, but at a future date. 

Then she plunged into what athletes 
describe as a period of intensive training. 
She studied technical angles and dramatic 
portrayal. She brushed up on her diction 
and on other phases of dramatic work. 
When she was ready, she asked for her 
test script. They handed her one of the 
most difficult episodes in The Lake. To 
most people, that would have been a seri- 
ous blow. The Lake is notoriously a very 
hard piece to master. You will remember 
what happened to Katharine Hepburn 
when she risked appearing in it on the 
stage. The whole show flopped and Katy 
rushed back to Hollywood. 

The test made, she twiddled her thumbs 
while the sun rose and set over Manhat- 
tan a number of times. Then, after a month 
of anxious waiting word came. She had 
been accepted. Paramount wanted her 
name on a long term contract. On her 
twenty-first birthday, on September 19, 
1935, to be exact, she signed and started 
for Hollywood, with its magic maze of 

And now comes a strange part of her 
story. This is the part that reveals some of 
Hollywood's peculiarities and makes you 
wonder just why studios do things as they 
do. Frances Farmer thought, quite natu- 
rally, that she would go right to work. She 
was being paid each week and she wanted 
to earn that money. She's that kind of a 
girl. But for a month she wasn't even 
handed a script. Then somebody else was 
staking a reputation on a film test and she 
was used for that. More tests followed. 
She began to call herself the "test girl." 
But it was beyond being a joke. She was 
really concerned about her future. 

Then came her first real film break. She 
was allowed to make her debut in an un- 
important part in an unimportant picture 
titled Too Many Parents. The unimpor- 
tant part gave the studio big wigs a chance 
to see what she could do and her days of 
inactivity came to a sudden end. She 
grabbed off the lead in Border Flight, then 
plunged headlong into the coveted role 
opposite Bing Crosby as the heroine of 
Rhythm On The Range. 

But it was in Come and Get It that she 
really made the audiences of the world 
Farmer conscious. That picture was mads 
by Goldwyn, who borrowed her from 
Paramount. It isn't likely that she will be 
loaned out for some time to come, because 
Paramount will keep her busy on its own 
pictures. At the moment she is playing 
opposite George Bancroft in a picture 
tentatively titled Doctor's Diary. 

The studios of Hollywood, for reasons 
which are obvious, like to have their 
popular young players stay unmarried as 
long as possible. In some cases, anti-

marriage clauses are written into the con-

wanted Frances Farmer to remain unmar- 
ried. But, here again, her individualism 
triumphed over hardened business pre- 

While being coached in Paramount's 
dramatic school, she was teamed with a 
handsome young fellow named Lief Erik- 
son. They enjoyed their work together 
and soon they were being linked in a ro- 
mantic way by the columnists who record 
such matters. Then came a motor trip to 
Yuma. Arizona, and they were married. 

To say that they lead a quiet life 
wouldn't be telling the truth. Frances, 
when she has hours away from the studio, 
likes to read. As in her younger years, 
she goes in for heavy literature, with a 
heavy leaning towards sociological sub- 

All is not peaches and cream between 
the studio and Miss Farmer. The studio 
is accustomed to having its players do 
what they are told. Miss Farmer isn't used 
to being bossed. She absolutely refuses 
to pose for those bathing suit pictures or 
any other pictures in poses she doesn't 
like. She insists that her lines be written 
in a manner that will make it possible for 
her to deliver them the natural way. She 
shuns advice about what she should or 
should not do when away from the studio. 
It is the usual thing for a young player 
to accept such advice. But, then, Frances 
Farmer isn't usual. That's why they refer 
to her in the film colony as "Hollywood's 
No Girl." 

Frances Farmer has raised a ban on bathing 
garb pictures. Here is one made before

Dark Secrets of Gaining Glamour! 

By Frances Kellum 

r T""HE Old Hollywood Philosopher says, 
"Look chic by day, glamorous by 
x night!" 

But just what is the secret of Glamour 
after-five? It's then you want that Special 
Look. The girl who looks fascinating 
under brilliant dance floor lights as well 
as across a candle-lit table for two is the 
winner every time. But how does she 
do it? 

For instance, when Merle Oberon at- 
tends a party she is dressed interestingly 
and in perfect taste. 

Merle Oberon's Recipe 

In other words, Merle's recipe for glam- 
orous after-five dressing is: Wear the 
color and pictorial style that you like and 
that suits you best at home. 

Wear white when you go formal (if it's 

Wear black for restaurant dining and 
dancing. (But she combines it, as a rule, 
with a white top.) 

For a Glamorous Make-up, she believes 
that the color should be brighter and 
lighter than you use during the day, and 
that smooth make-up rests on a smooth 
foundation cream! 

'"Of course," said Merle, "the first thing 
is to relax if it's only for five minutes 
before you start getting dressed in the 
evening. Relax completely. Everybody is 

Merle Oberon contends that if you wish to 

have a young, provocative mouth, use of the 

new Vermilion lipstick is highly essential as a 

part of your make-up 

so busy these days they've almost for- 
gotten how. But the best way to do it is 
to lie down and consciously relax each 
muscle until you feel that every bit of 
tenseness has left you. Begin by letting 
the hands go limp, the arms, and then the 
head and back. Relax mentally too. For 

those five minutes drop all thoughts — 
even gay ones! They can excite you and 
make you grow tense again. 

"And if you feel especially tired, try 
putting pads of cotton dipped in a witch 
hazel solution on your eyes. That will 
give them a fresh, lively look in no time. 

"It's only after you've rested that you 
are ready for your make-up and can really 
do justice to it." 

Yes, Glamour depends on sparkle — and 
sparkle depends on relaxation. 

Five Points of Glamour

Personally, I don't think any make-up in 
the world is soft and well-blended when 
it's applied directly to the skin. It needs 
a foundation cream! That's one of the 
biggest glamour secrets we have ever 
learned from the screen stars — they have 
always used a foundation in their picture 
roles. And Max Factor, make-up wizard 
of Hollywood, considers it just as im- 
portant for other women for their street 
make-up — and as one of their "dark 

How the doctor chooses 
from hundreds of laxatives 

MOST of us recall, with gratitude, 
some crisis in our lives when the 
doctor's vigilance and skill proved price- 
less beyond words. But many of us forget 
that the doctor is equally on guard in 
minor matters of health. 

Consider a laxative, for example. It 
may be news to you that the doctor has 
a definite set of standards which a laxa- 
tive must meet before he will approve 
it. Check the specifications listed below. 
How many of them will your own laxa- 
tive meet? 

The doctor says that a laxative should 
be: Dependable . . . Mild . . . Thorough 
. . . Time-tested. 

The doctor says that a laxative should 
not: Over-act . . . Form a habit . . . Cause 
stomach pains . . . Nauseate, or upset the 

Ex-Lax checks on every point listed 
above. Meets the doctor's demands of a 
laxative fairly and fully. No wonder so 
many doctors use Ex-Lax in their own 
homes, for their own families. In fact, 

Ex-Lax has made so many millions of 
friends, that it is the most widely used 
laxative in the world. 

Convince yourself of the facts. Try 
Ex-Lax. You'll find that it is mild . . . that 
it is thorough. You'll discover that it does 
not bring on stomach pains or nausea. On 
the contrary, the easy comfortable action 
of Ex-Lax will leave you with a pleasant 
sense of freshness and well-being. 

Children, particularly, are benefited 
by Ex-Lax. Like the older folks, they 
enjoy its delicious chocolate taste. At 
all drug stores in 10c and 25c sizes. Or

Rouge should be shaded away to a mere 
nothing if you want to keep the proper 
mystery about you. No girl has an ounce 
of glamour with hectic red rings on her 
cheeks' As for lipstick, don't draw in 
your mouth with a sharp, downward line, 
curve it. And if you want a young, pro- 
vocative mouth, just use that new Ver- 
milion lipstick! 

As for the eyes — don't forget there's 
more actual glamour in eye-shadow and a 
little eyelash make-up than Helen of Troy 
ever knew existed! 

As the final touch to your make-up put 
a little perfume back of each ear. Not the 
clear, flower scent you use during the day 
but a shadowy fragrance that is exotic. 
And be careful not to dab powder on your 
nose the last thing. If you've used a skin 
freshener (or an astringent if your skin is 
oily) and powdered well once, you should 
not have to powder again until much later 
in the evening.

Shrine Fezzes 

By Hamm Beall 

Your Hollywood Correspondent not 
long ago, as the photo on this page 
will bear witness, was accorded a 
privilege that probably thousands of femi- 
nine film fans would have sold their 
chances of playing an alto harp in St. 
Peter's Celestial Orchestra to enjoy, 
namely being photographed with Robert 
Taylor right on a set at Metro-Goldwyn- 
Mayer's monumental movie manufactory 
at Culver City, a southwesterly suburb of 

It was my first meeting with the reign- 
ing masculine favorite of 1936 and 1937 
despite the fact that thousands of letters 
had reached my desk as managing editor 
of this cinema chronicle, each and every 
epistle exuding enthusiasm over the 
charm and Thespic achievements of the 
young Pomona College graduate, whose 
Armand to Garbo's Camille probably is 
giving even Alexander Dumas a thrill re- 
gardless of the destination to which he was 
delivered by Charon, chief ferryman of 
the River Styx. 

If the reader, the reader's father, hus- 
band, brother or son happens to be a 
Mason, it will be appreciated that when I 
took Judge Clyde I. Webster, of Detroit, 
Imperial Potentate of the Shrine of North 
America to M-G-M, your humble scribe 
was armed with an open sesame of potency 

Corner Bob Taylor On Set! 

Hamm Beall escorts Judge Clyde I. Webster, 

of Detroit, Imperial Potentate of Shrine, to 

M-G-M studios to meet Robert Taylor 

equal to that used to obtain entrance to 
the cave of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. 
"The wife would never forgive me if she 
heard I came to Hollywood and did not 
meet Bob Taylor," the head man of the 
crimson-fezzed nobles whispered in my 
ear as soon as he heard that Jean Harlow 

and Taylor were starting The Man in Pos- 
session, and when Lawrence Cobb, poten- 
tate of Al Malaikah temple, learned that 
Woody Van Dyke was directing the pic- 
ture that Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., made 
famous as a stage play, the Los Angeles 
Shrine chieftain started the party in a bee 
line for Stage 6. Woody received the 
ancient Arabic ritual of the Shrine a few 
months ago and when his potentate ap- 
pears it's just a case of dropping every- 
thing else and concentrating on a certain 
amount of Grade A salaams. 

Woody was most gracious and so was 
Bob, particularly when he found out that 
I, too, was an old Pomona College student, 
if you use the word student advisedly. Of 
course, the fact that I was a Fawcett editor 
did not mitigate against me. 

Jean Harlow was not scheduled for the 
scenes shot that day, but had just paid a 
social visit to the set a few minutes before, 
and Hugh Caldwell, past potentate of Nile 
Temple, Seattle, was rather disappointed. 

Bob was in a swank bathrobe and had 
just been catching the very devil from his 
father and brother for having disgraced 
the British family name by serving a sen- 
tence in an English reformatory. This 
angle, and the fact that later on in the 
story he has a job as a bailiff to take pos- 
session over attached property, particu- 
larly interested the Shrine national leader, 
for it was in line with the legal lore asso- 
ciated with Judge Webster's courtroom in 
the motor metropolis. 


...Then Make-up's Smart 

A SWELL TIME in the out of doors is no 
reason for a skin all scuffed and flaky 
looking for your swanky evening date. 

There^s a simple way popular girls know — 
to get rid of all those little flaky bits that 
spoil skin for make-up. A special kind of 
cream that actually melts off horrid "powder 
catchers"' — in just one application!

"After Pond'a

I use it over- 
too, after cleans- 

Here's how a distinguished der- 
matologist explains it: 

"Exposure hastens the drying out of sur- 
face skin cells. They shrink, scuff loose. 
The skin feels harsh. These particles can be 
melted away instantly with a keratolytic 
cream (Vanishing Cream). Then the smooth, 
underlying cells appear." 

See this for yourself — with Pond's Van- 
ishing Cream. 

Before make-up — Right after cleansing 
put on a f'm of Pond's Vanishing Cream. 
It smooths away every flaky bit. Now pow- 
der and rouge go on evenly. Stay for hours. 

Overnight — Apply Pond's Vanishing Cream 
after your nightly cleansing. Leave it on. 
\s you sleep, your skin gets softer.

It seems that Bob was a Phi Delta Theta 
at the University of Nebraska, but since 
that fraternity had no chapter at Pomona, 
where only locals are now permitted, fol- 
lowing his transfer there he lived in the 
men's dormitory until graduating in 1933. 
We talked to Joel McCrea, another 
Pomona lad, who has gone far in the films. 
Joel, by the way, was most active as a 
Sigma Tau, a frat of which the writer is 
proud to have been a founder member, 
and to which credit has been done by 
Relman Morrin, who pounding a mean 
typewriter, chronicles Hollywood events 
for the Associated Press in the daily papers 
of the nation. 

Knowing the story of The Man in Pos- 
session as well as I do, for when Sid 
Grauman presented Duggie Fairbanks in 
this stage play I happened to be Sir 
Sidney's publicity chief, I wouldn't say it 
would be Bob Taylor's supreme achieve- 
ment, but fans will find their fair-haired 
favorite in a breezy, lovable role that won't 
be hard to take. 

And while we're on the subject of 
Shriners you may be interested to know 
that the biggest shots in the film capital 
wear that scimitar and crescent pin you 
see in lapels so often. 

If Harold Lloyd does not rob a bank or 
take a Hershey chocolate bar away from a 
crying baby in the next two years, that 
four eyed comic and producer will become 
Illustrious Potentate of Al Malaikah 
temple. Al Malaikah is the Arabic 
nomenclature for the 14,000 vermilion 
turbaned nobles congregating in Southern 
California under Potentate Lawrence 
Cobb's leadership. 

Clark Gable and Dick Powell are both 
active members, and those ace producers, 
Louis B. Mayer and Jack L. Warner have 
furnished talent galore in the past to make 
successes of conclaves on the coast. Carl 
Laemmle, Sr., almost passed out when 
riding a rough and rowdy camel in a "hot 
foot'' ceremonial. Tom Mix has always 
been loyal to the order, and there are 
scores of other executives and lesser ex- 
ecutives who take their fun on the "play- 
ground of Freemasonry." 

Excess fat is freqtlently caused 
by faulty elimination of poisons 
which interfere with the body's 
natural weight and energy regu- 
lating processes called metabolism. 
Consequently it often takes that 
delicious and refreshing GERMA- 
NIA Orange Pekoe Tea you drink 
15 minutes before each meal, and 
that pleasant tasting, purely vege- 
you drink with one or two meals 
each day, together with eating 
whatever you want, excepting 
much starchy foods or fatty meats 
to get your energy on the increase and those trouble- 
making intestinal toxins or poisons on the decrease, so 
you can quickly lose those pounds of unnatural excess 
fat and improve the appearance of your figure.

An excess of acids or poisons in your blood, when 
due to functional kidney disorders, may be the cause

• Glenda Farrell has a new idea about wielding the eyebrow pencil. 
Everyone should have two, says Glenda, a black one and a brown one and 

instead of being pointed they should be narrow and blunt at the ends. 
The brown one is used to outline the brow first, and then the black. 
Blondes should let the brown tone predominate and brunettes should 
reverse the procedure.

Colors either blend or clash. In 
make-up, this means "naturalness" 
or that harsh "made-up" look. To 
eliminate any appearance of 
hardness particularly around the 
eyes, WiNX has made its colors to 
blend 3 ways. 1. With com- 
plexion. 2. With eyes. 3. With 
each other. For example, WINX 
Blue Mascara blends perfectly 
with WiNX Blue Eye Shadow or 
Eyebrow Pencil. Likewise, its 
tonal values are so balanced as to 
make it complementary to all 
olher WINX colors. Thus, WINX 
gives you the secret of "natural" 
eye make-up. 

IT'S amazing the way WINX mascara transforms the appearance of 
eyes. One moment — just attractive eyes. The next — an exotic, 
glamourous glance that stirs the emotions — the glance that men 
adore . . . and women envy. WINX truly glorifies the eyes. Makes 
lashes seem long, silky and shadowy as dusk. Keeps them soft, too. 
So try this harmless mascarc today. In three balanced shades 
(Blue . Black . Brown) and in three convenient forms ("Cake . Liquid 
Creamy}. On sale at department, drug and 5 and 10 cent stores.

• A local make-up wizard offers these 
valuable tips on "nose" make-up if that 
appendage isn't all it should be. If your 
nose is too long, pluck the eyebrows away 
from it and by widening the space between 
the brows you'll give an optical illusion 
of shortening the nose. For a concave 
nose, powder the top or bridge with a 
light powder and the sides with a dark 
powder. Eyeshadow artfully placed at 
the inside corners of the eyes will also 
shade the nose and make it appear 
straighter. If the nose is too prominent 
and the chin recedes, powder the chin 
more heavily and add a trace of rouge to 
bring it forward. 

• Clap hands! Something to cheer about 
is a skin softening lotion which prevents 
chapping. Especially recommended to 
keep hands smooth and white, it is just 
as beneficial for face, arms and elbows 
and may be used effectively as a powder 
base. Quickly absorbed by the skin, this 
lotion has a hundred and one beauty- 
giving uses. The price is one dollar for 
a generous deluxe bottle. Want the name? 

• Jean Muir. who has a fine-textured 
white skin, takes a weekly bath in warm 
scented mineral oil. Once a week she 
spreads the oil over her entire body and 
leaves it there until the skin absorbs all 
that it will. After the oil has had a chance 
to penetrate. Jean wipes it off with a soft 
cloth and gives herself a vigorous rub- 
down with a Turkish towel. 

• Betty Furness. the gal who keeps 
Hollywood intrigued with her unique hats, 
is equally ingenious in devising hair orna- 
ments for gala occasions. Atop a black 
tulle mantilla she wears a bunch of cello- 
phane flowers of multiple hue which look 
like Florentine glass and pick up the color 
of the gown she is wearing. Betty also 
flaunts for evening wear four white birds 
with spreading wings which look as if a 
covey of doves had settled on her hair. 

• All-color release! Harmony is the key- 
note of the powder, rouge and lipstick 
offered by a famous Hollywood manu- 
facturer of beauty aids. Select your rouge, 
and you have only to refer to the color 
chart to find lipstick and powder to har- 
monize in exact color tones. These 
cosmetics are widely used by the screen 
stars who know the value of artfully 
blended make-up for street and evening 
wear. If you want the name, write a letter 
describing your coloring, and specific 
shades of powder, rouge and lipstick will 
be recommended for you. Powder and 
lipstick are one dollar, rouge 50 cents.

Luise Rainer Goes Internationale ! 

< Continued from pase twenty-seven) 

Luise, it is said, lives on her impulses. 
But it goes deeper than that. Intuition is 
the word. Essentially, she is a child of 
nature, highly sensitive. Her feelings are 
delicately attuned to all that goes on about 
her, and she is rarely wrong in her esti- 
mate of people and situations. 

"Follow nature, and you cannot go very 
wrong," she declares. 

To those wary of "acts" pulled by so 
many of the glamorous actresses from 
abroad, her mode of living has often 
evoked a hint of suspicion. 

"What is this business of shyness?" they 
asked. "Wasn't she on the stage abroad?" 

The answer is simple enough. Luise 
Rainer is genuinely shy because in her 
own estimation she is not important. She 
stays away from night clubs and popular 
resorts because she is not at home there, 
and doesn't relish the idea of going some- 
where to be on display, instead of for en- 
joyment. She is not "exclusive," but eager 
for friends, companionship and under- 
standing. There is nothing of the "tem- 
peramental" star about her. Living as 
close to nature as she does, she has a deep 
understanding of fundamental things. And 
yet, there is a phase of her personality that 
is almost child-like. This is responsible 
for the "madcap" escapades which have 
become a part of the legend that sur- 
rounds her. Like her trip to Mexico, that 

Luise Rainer, as O-lan, wife of Wong Lund, the 

farmer in Good Earth, does a bit of laundering 

in the best approved Chinese custom 

grand California morning when she told 
her maid she would take a run down to 
the ocean before breakfast. Only to re- 
turn two days later, to find them in tears, 
ready to notify the police. 

It was a nice sunny day. The beach had 
stretched ahead temptingly for miles. 
Never having been down that way, she 
drove along to see how far the road fol- 
lowed the ocean. It ran for a long way, 
in fact to Laguna, which is over sixty 
miles. She forgot about breakfast, it was 
so glorious riding in the early morning, 
top down, with Johnny (her beloved 
Scotty) beside her. She passed a nice 
little cove with no one around. Luise 
took off her sandals, rolled up her slacks, 
and she and Johnny went wading. Here 
was fun! More fun than she had known 
since coming to America. 

There must be more fun, farther along. 
She wondered what town lay beyond. She 
wouldn't use a map, because exploring 
was more fun. Hours later, she arrived 
in San Diego, tired and hungry. There 
were mobs of people in the streets. Crowds 
eating hot dogs. Buildings filled with ex- 
hibits. The San Diego Fair was in full 
swing. The smell of pop com and hot dogs 
and onions tingled in her nostrils. She 
and Johnny should have dinner. And 
they did, with all the fixings! She was 
handed the check. The thought of money

Hoiv much is it costing you

Every day yocr associates are judging you — by what yoo 
Bay and how you say it! Hazy ideas, ill-chosen words, halt- 
ing sentences, crude, slovenly speech— these mark a man as 
loose in thinking. Thoughts clear-cut, words that give 
true shape and color, sentences aflame with power and 
originality— these are the things that proclaim ability, that 
win for their users swift advancement. Stop apologizing 
for poor English — it's inexcusable! In the quiet of your 
home — with LaSalle's help — you can learn to speak and 
write with real distinction , learn to make the words you utter 
and the letters you compose stamp you as educated, cultured,

hadn't occurred to her before. It hap- 
pened that she had ten dollars. That was 
plenty, and she didn't have to go home 
yet. She would spend the night away 
from home. The servants wouldn't worry 
too much, she hoped. 

A tired little girl in rumpled dark blue 
slacks with a dog under her arm, found 
an auto camp down by the sea. One dollar 
a night. Twenty-five cents extra for bed 
linen. Luise asked where she was. Only 
a few miles from the Mexican border. An- 
other country! She must see it. There 
was still nearly eight dollars in her purse, 
enough for gas and food. And she had 
washed out her blouse and underthings 
in the washbowl at the auto camp, though 
she had nothing to "make them flat.'' 
Thank goodness, there was a comb in her 
purse. Across the border she went. No 
questions are asked when you leave the 
country. After a day of exploring, she de- 
cided to go back to the same little camp 
to spend the night on her way home. 
Then started the complications. 

She was stopped by officials at the bor- 
der, who asked if she were an American 

"What is it you mean?" she asked, dark 
eyes wide with amazement. "I live in 
America, yes." 

But her accent was against her, and 
she was taken out of line for questioning, 
where she found to her consternation that 
she had left her quota certificate at home. 
Would they believe her? Not on your 
life. Border officials have to be tough. 
And they can think of more questions in 
five minutes than the average fellow in a 

Her Looks Belie 

Luise looked like a poor little Mexican 
girl. Her clothes were mussy, her hair 
tousled, and she was tanned brown as 
a berry. In her best English, she tried to 
explain she was an actress, and worked 
for M-G-M. Wry smiles were her only 
answer. They had seen movie stars, all 
right, but they had glamour, big cars, 
swell clothes. They didn't even listen to 
her when she begged that they call the 
studio for her identification. More officers 
gathered and talked so fast that little 
Luise. huddled in a corner with Johnny 
in her lap, could not understand them. 
Then Johnny growled. That was a sign. 

"Perhaps we had better hold her for in- 
vestigation," she heard them say. Then she 
got an idea. Ads for her current picture 
were in the magazines, and she would 
show them one to prove her case. Under 
escort she went out to purchase a maga- 
zine, and brought it back for proof. 

There are other escapades of Rainer. 
Like the time she went to Santa Barbara 
to visit friends. Finding them away, she 
slipped in a window, rearranged the fur- 
niture, and slipped back to Hollywood 
without a word. For days they lived in 
deadly fear of burglars, until she broke 
down and confessed. 

And so she goes on her way, living ac- 
cording to her own whimsical pattern. 
She listens to her beloved music, goes for 
long walks through the countryside sur- 
rounding her home. Mixes her own food 
concoctions, according to what she feels 
should be put in them, disregards regu- 
lation clothes and make-up, with the ex- 
ception of lipstick, and moves about in 
the circle of her few intimate friends. 

And while Odets is doing the story 
for Castles in Spain, in the offices of 
Walter Wanger, Luise probably will be 
building "castles in Spain" of her own pat- 
tern, but now including a husband.

would you call the duties of those two 

Montgomery watched the scum-scoop- 
ing a moment. 

"I would say, my dear chappy, that they 
are an inanimate League of Decency," was 
Montgomery's parry of wit. 

The roseate Englishman wriggled his 
eyebrows at Montgomery, arose from his 
chair and sought other fields for conver- 
sation. He met Miss Crawford emerging 
from her dressing room. 

"Cheerio, Joan," he greeted her. "I saw 
your husband, Franchot, last night and he 
appeared quite white . . ." 

Montgomery Retorts 

"Oh, yes," came a voice from behind his 
back. "It's a law for Americans to marry 

It was Montgomery, still stalking Bruce. 

Montgomery scrutinized Miss Crawford, 
discovered the snug little black hat on her 
head, surmounted by three little black 
pom-poms. • 

"What a lovely hat," he complimented 
her. "Looks like a Palm Springs sunset." 

The work of preparing the stage, the 
props, the lights and the camera continued. 
Time still remained for the Battle of Wits 
on Stage Eleven. 

Powell was walking toward Miss 

"I'm afraid you're mistaken — this is my room!" 

Thus Frank Morgan argues with Joan Crawford 

in a scene from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's The 

Lasf of Mrs. Cheyney 

"You haven't seen your new dressing 
room, Bill," she reminded him. Let me 
show it to you." 

Powell cautiously peeked in. It was 
furnished in the loveliest Louis VI style, 
gaudy plush furnishings, dazzling drapes, 
maukish paintings, a bowl of flowers and 
a sewing basket. Powell took another 
look, then confessed: 

"H-m-m, either I must speak with a 
cockney lisp in this picture — or abdicate." 

Frank Morgan was in a corner of the 

set, confiding quietly to Benita Hume. 
"Heaven knows, I've always wanted to 
be a tragedian and that's why I am a 
comedian. The difficulty with the tragedian 
is that he wants to live his baleful roles 
in private life as well as on the stage or 
screen. He has been in the habit of 
snarling all day into the camera and when 
he arrives home he continues to snarl at 
his wife and she . . ." 

Director Bellows 

"Children!" the director bellowed. "This 
is no kindergarten. We are paid to work, 
to make the world laugh and cry. Let's 
go to work!" 

The scene revealed all the principals 
seated on the terrace around the break- 
fast table, nibbling little sausages. Miss 
Crawford has just been unmasked as an 
American adventuress who, posing as a 
wealthy widow, had attempted to steal 
the duchess' pearls. Powell, too, has been 
unmasked by the clever amateur detective 
work of Montgomery, and he stands at her 

"Off-stage — quiet!" the director shouted. 

Montgomery moved into the scene, 
moving a chair under Miss Crawford. 

"Won't you have a chair?" he asked. 

"Thank you," she replied haughtily. 
She sat down. "As Charles was born a 
gentleman, mayn't he sit down as well?" 

"Of course," Montgomery apologized. 
"Take a seat, Charles."

Milk-oils penetrate with amazing speed, cleanse 

deeply, give skin satin smoothness quickly 

. . . dryness goes at once! 


in Universale 

MILK-OILS used are 
extracted from pure 
fresh dairy MILK 

You can instantly see and feel the as- 
tonishing difference between Duart's 
Creme of Milk and all the other face 
cremes you have ever tried. No creme, 
lotion or soap can duplicate the vital 
effects of milk-oils on the skin. For 
milk-oils are natural oils, produced 
by glandular secretion . . . the oils of 
your own skin are produced in very 
similar manner. That's why Creme of 
Milk sinks instantly into the pores and 
is absorbed by the outer skin tissue. 
Say goodbye to DRY SKIN, BLACK- 
mature lines when you start using this 
new type of beauty creme. 

NIGHTS: Apply generously for cleans- 
ing and wipe face clean. Milk-oils 
have already soaked into skin tissue 
and will remain there. See how smooth 
and soft your skin feels already. Also 
note that your skin doesn't feel or 
look greasy. 

MORNINGS: Not so much creme as 
the night before. Wipe off any excess. 
Now it's smooth and ready for pow- 
der. Was your face ever so satin- 
smooth before! 

Skin faults soon disappear and skin 
looks younger, because it's smoother, 
softer, cleaner and finer in texture.

"No, thank you, Dilling," Powell replied. 

Montgomery again turned to Miss 

"I'll be brief, Mrs. Cheyney. The posi- 
tion is as follows: you have acknowledged 
frankly that in accepting Lord Ebley's . . . 
Oh, Gosh . . ." 

He had "blown" his line, criticizing him- 
self: "What's the matter with me?" 

"Courage, my dear." Powell chided him. 
"Nerves, you know." 

The director moved in to offer some 
fatherly advice: 

"Please, children, don't lose the good 
spirit. The scene is charming. So please 
have a good time . . . Quiet! GO!" 

Montgomery went back to the be- 
ginning. The scene continued faultlessly 
to the end. They rehearsed it again, and 
then the director called for a "take." 

Make-up artists moved in to dab powder 
on the famous faces. Hairdressers ad- 
vanced, toyed with the tresses, retreated. 
But Montgomery had disappeared. A few 
moments later he returned, passing toast 
and little sausages around to the other 

Nigel Bruce, too, had moved out of the 
setting. He wrapped an arm around Miss 
Crawford's shoulder and started to yodel. 
Somebody called "Ralph!" 

Run Around for Forbes 

Ralph Forbes scurried around the set, 
attempting to respond to the call, but 
nobody wanted him. 

"By Jove!" he exclaimed. "Three Ralphs 
on this set — it's driving me crazy!" 

"Only two Ralphs," Cameraman Folsey 
corrected him. "We fired one yesterday." 

Bruce, too, was in a dither. 

"Hereafter. I write my own lines. 
They're much funnier." 

"But you have no lines in this scene, 
Nigel," Powell reminded Bruce. 

"I know," Bruce sighed. "That's why 
they're not funny," 

The director looked around the stage at 
his stampeding flock of thespian chicks. 
Montgomery and Morgan had settled 
down to a card game they called "Clunk." 
Joan Crawford had sat herself upon a dais 
to be painted in oils by the portrait artist, 
Azaida Newman. Phyllis Claire and Benita 
Hume had sought a secluded bench to 
play a game of backgammon. 

The troubled director recalled other in- 
cidents involving a wholesale family of 
talent. There was the scene in which he 
had so many difficulties with Frank 
Morgan. In it, seated beside the fishpond, 
Miss Crawford was called upon to remove 
Frank's shoes. Frank had spoiled six 
scenes with hysterical outbursts of laugh- 
ter before the director sought the reason. 

Morgan Apologizes 

"I'm so sorry," Frank admitted. "I'm 
afraid you'll have to — ah — re-rewrite the 
scene . . . I'm so — uh — ticklish on my left 

And another scene on the promenade 
deck of an ocean liner. Called into the 
scene, Morgan shook his shoulders, threw 
out his chest, puckered his bushy brows 
and turned to Montgomery and Miss 
Crawford when — ■ 

"Blowie! BAM!— six deafening blasts 
rocked the stage in the midst of the scene. 

"Oh— MY!— Gosh!" Morgan screamed. 
"Who did that?" 

In Montgomery's hand, Frank saw a 
smoking 45-calibre horse-pistol, supplied 
by the prop man to scare Morgan. 

Then there was that scene . . . But why 
go on?

How Fate Tricked 
Ross Alexander! 

< Continued from page twenty-six) 

Much of the time when Ross Alexander was 

not busy at the studios he spent living a life 

in the open at his ten-acre ranch home near 

Encino, Calif. 

earlier in the month. He and Miss Nagel, 
just after the parents left for the east, 
made plans for a trip to New York within 
a few days. 

On the day of his death he had appeared 
quite happy to the servants in his home. 
He had helped Anne dismantle their 
Christmas tree during the day — they had 
kept it up until the pine needles began 
to fall to the floor. Humming to himself, 
Ross had done sundry small things around 
the house during the day. In the after- 
noon they sat in the parlor of the ranch 
home, Anne knitting and Ross telling her 
his plans for their belated honeymoon. As 
the day drew toward an end he strummed 
on a guitar which had been given him for 
Christmas, and sang gay songs which be- 
lied the things that were in his heart. 

On Great Adventure 

Then, when twilight brought the end of 
another day, Ross took a flashlight and a 
gun, and walked to the barn 400 feet from 
the house. A few minutes later a servant 
found his prostrate form in the hay loft. 
Ross Alexander died with the last gray 
wisp of daylight. 

Did the death of his first wife, then, 
bring on the melancholy which doomed 
him to suicide? 

Partly, but not entirely. On the screen 
Ross Alexander was a gay comedian more 
than anything else. But like many an- 
other comedian, he seldom exhibited that 
flashing humor in real life. 

He was an introvert who looked too long 
into the why of life, instead of joining 
with it He had always been of the lone 
wolf type. His many friends were largely 
only cordial acquaintances, never sharing 
the brooding thoughts of his mind. He 
was probably already on the path to 
lisaster when Aleta speeded her way into 
"ternity and left a trail open which was 
llready too easy for him to follow. 

"Nothing brings quicker 
relief when my throat is 
rough and scratchy than 
Luden's. They're so sooth- 
ing and pleasant ! " 

"Luden's menthol vapor 
clears my nasal passages- 
helps me breathe correctly 
through my nose — and so 
protect my throat.** 

'• Luden*s now contain an 
Alkaline Factor to help 
build up your alkaline re- 
serve — and that's just

For Real Beauty— 

You Must Have Soft 

Alluring Skin 

. . . Free From Pimples 

Cmooth, satiny skin — a radi- 
antly clear, youthful complexion 
— men admire them and modern style 
demands them. 

To be truly lovely, you must rid 
your skin of ugly pimples on face and 
body. And thousands are doing it, with 
complete success. 

The real cause of disorders result- 
ing in ugly pimples may be nothing in 
the world except a lack of the yeast 
vitamins B and G. When these elements 
are not present in the human diet in suf- 
ficient quantities, the intestinal tract be- 
comes weak and sluggish. Its function is 
badly impaired. Constipation is likely to 
ensue and this, in turn, often shows up in 
pimply skin. 

Countless men and ivomen have 
found that in such cases, Yeast 
Foam Tablets work wonders. This 
pure dry yeast supplies vitamins 
B and G in abundant quantities 


You'll Like the Taste! 

and thus tends to restore the intestinal 
tract to normal — in those instances of 
vitamin deficiency. With the intestinal 
tract again in healthy function, pimples 
should quickly disappear. 

Unlike ordinary yeast. Yeast 
Foam Tablets are pasteurized and hence 
cannot cause gas or fermentation. They 
are easy to swallow and most people 
relish their clean, nut-like taste. They 
keep, too. Start now. Try Yeast Foam 
Tablets and give them the chance to give 
you the same welcome relief they have 
brought to so many others. 

jIVER VES ? Vitamin B, known as the 
anti-neuritic vitamin, is absolutely necessary 
to sound, steady nerves. Lack of enough vita- 
min B causes polyneuritis — the inflamma- 
tion of many nerves. Yeast Foam Tablets, so 
rich in the B factor, -prevent and 
correct nervous conditions caused 
by vitamin B deficiency.

Green Light 

(Continued from page thirty-four) 

required about two months, but long be- 
fore a camera unwound an inch of cel- 
luloid the studio was concerned with pre- 
paring the novel for screening. 

Dr. Douglas, who left his pulpit In a 
Los Angeles church to spread his sermons 
to a much wider audience through his 
novels, described somewhat casually the 
bitter struggle Dr. Paige and his associate, 
Dr. John Stafford, played by Abel, and 
others before them had waged to develop 
a vaccine that would immunize humans 
against spotted fever. 

In a few words he told of the death and 
desolation left in the wake of the epidemic. 

To photograph those same experiments, 
to picture that same desolation, however, 
was considerably more involved than 
merely describing them. 

To begin with, immediately after pur- 
chasing the novel Warner Brothers put 
research experts to work on it. They 
learned that the old farmhouse where 
thousands of wood-ticks had been dis- 
sected in the fight to control the epidemic, 
still stands on Boone Mountain. 

Reproduced on Ranch 

From these photographs an exact repro- 
duction subsequently was built on the 
Warner studio ranch at Calabasas. An 
interior was constructed on a sound stage. 

Pictures also were taken at various other 
points of interest in the Bitter Root valley. 
Numerous abandoned farmhouses and 
many new places, built since the discovery 
of spotted fever vaccine in 1924, were 
photographed. Lakes, rivers, dams, were 
captured on Celluloid. So, too, were sev- 
eral small villages throughout the region. 

Then the studio, through its location de- 
partment, set out to duplicate the Southern 
California scenes photographed in far off 

Agents found in Sherwood Lake an ap- 
proximately exact duplicate of a lake in 
the Bitter Root valley. Even the required 
dam was there. 

A great cathedral was built for Sir 
Cedric Hardwicke, who was imported by 
Warners from London to play the part 
of the clerical philosopher, Dean Harcourt. 
A huge Gothic interior was built on a 
sound stage, completely filling it. An 
exterior of the same edifice rose on the 
studio back lot. 

In GreewLight Dr. Douglas wrote in a 
dog character named Sylvia. The dog, 
the pet and constant companion of Flynn, 
toward the end of the story dies of spotted 
fever induced by the bite of a wood-tick. 

Immediately following the announce- 
ment by Warner Brothers that they would 
film the story a flood of letters descended 
upon the studio, pleading that Sylvia be 
allowed to live in the screen drama. The 
letters, written by readers of the novel, 
had not ceased when the last scene of the 
picture was filmed. 

Apparently the readers of Dr. Douglas' 
book had not resented the dog's death in 
the novel, or at least they failed to give 
voice to their resentment. Such was not 
the case with the film version, however. 
The fans didn't want Sylvia to die and 
they were going to do all they could about 

How well they succeeded is illustrated 
by the fact that, in accordance with the 
decision of Director Frank Borzage, Sylvia 
survives in the picture. — Francis Heacock. 


Without Calomel — And You'll Jump Out 
of Bed in the Morning Rarin' to Go 

The liver should pour out two pounds of liquid 
bile into your bowels daily. If this bile is not 
flowing freely, your food doesn't digest. It just 
decays in the bowels. Gas bloats up your stomach. 
You get constipated. Your whole system is poi- 
soned and you feel sour, sunk and the world 
looks punk. 

Laxatives are only makeshifts. A mere bowel 
movement doesn't get at the cause. It takes those 
good, old Carter's Little Liver Pills to get these 
two pounds of bile flowing freely and make you 
feel "up and up." Harmless, gentle, yet amazing 
in making bile flow freely. Ask for Carter's Little 
Liver Pills by name. Stubbornly refuse anything 
else. 25c at all drug stores* © 1935, C. M. Co.

Dogs are like people. Some are smarter 
than others. Some dogs are born to be 
stars and others are apparently born to be 
just dogs. Any trainer who has handled 
them usually can tell whether an animal 
is a potential star or just a cute dog. 

Skippy, the adorable little wire-haired 
terrier who skyrocketed into movie fame 
when he appeared with Myrna Loy and 
William Powell in The Thin Man, was dis- 
covered in a pet shop in Ocean Park, Cal. 
His bright little face caught the attention 
of Henry East who has been training dogs 
for many years. East had been looking 
for a wire-haired terrier that he could 
train for picture work. It is difficult to 
train a wire-hair for this work as they are • 
so nervous and high strung that they sel- 
dom can resist chasing any moving object 
that attracts their attention. But Skippy, 
East decided, was star material. The dog 
was less than three months old when East 
bought him. In one month he had learned 
to sit up, lie down, to speak, and to come 
when called. He learned so fast and was 
so dependable that when he was a year old 
he began his picture career. He was put 

Very, very doggy, swanlsy and what-have-you 
is the studio "bungalow" provided for Mr. Asta 
during the time he lent his talent to After 
the Thin Man. His real home has class, too 

in a few pictures just for "atmosphere" 
and he was so cute that he was signed up 
for The Thin Man to play the role of 
Mr. Asta. 

Mr. East had noticed that whenever 
Skippy's ears itched he had a funny little 
habit of putting his head down on the 
ground and walking around in a circle 
with his hind legs upraised. He decided to 
make a trick out of it, thinking that it 
might some time be good for a laugh. 
Every time Skippy put his head down to 
scratch his ears, East would shout, "That's 
right, Skippy, go crazy!" Soon the dog 
associated the command with the action 
and when the signal was given he would 
"go crazy." 

During the making of The Thin Man 
the director wanted some bit of action 
which would show what the dog thought 
of a hectic party going on in the living 
room. They decided to use the "going 
crazy" trick. Skippy was told to go to the 
door and look out at the party, then run 
under the bed and go crazy. He was so 
cute that the gag got one of the biggest 
laughs in the picture. In fact, Skippy 
made such a personal hit in that picture 
that when the sequel, After the Thin Man, 
was made he was one of the first "actors" 
to be engaged, and he was given three 
times as much footage as he had in the 
original film.

Tuffy hitch-hilied to Hollywood to get himself 
a film job. Of course, he had some assistance 
from his sheep herder owner, but with Wally 
Beery in Old Hutch, and in other films, he 
has justified his owner's confidence in his ability 

rewarded by being allowed to chew his 
i ubber mouse which he adores. When the 
scene called for him to be very attentive 
to what Bill Powell had to say, Powell 
put the mouse in his pocket and let Skippy 
know that it was there. And Skippy has 
so much expression in his face that he 
gave the appearance of understanding 
every word Powell said. 

When Skippy is working on a picture, 
Mr. East, or one of his assistant trainers, 
accompanies the dog to the studio. They 
travel in a sedan and drive right up to the 
sound stage. The trainer also acts as a 
pseudo-nursemaid and sees to it that the 
people on the set don't feed Skippy things 
he shouldn't eat, and also that they don't 
make too much fuss over him and tire 
him out. Between scenes Skippy and the 
trainer go out and sit in the sedan. They 
have a radio in the car and Skippy listens 
to the music or takes a little snooze on his 

Henry East has about forty dogs that 
work in pictures. When the dogs are at 
home they live in a long, Spanish-type 
shed. Each dog has a room of his own 
with a bunk for him to sleep on. The 
rooms are air-cooled in summer and 
heated in winter and each room has a full 
length glass door so that the dogs can see 
what is going on outside. Each morning 
the dogs are taken out for exercise and a 
long run. Then they are given breakfast, 
and are combed and brushed so that their 
coats will be nice and shiny. 

Another one of Mr. East's dogs that has 
made a name for himself in pictures is 
Corky. Corky's father was probably a 
traveling man and his mother one of those 
girls who couldn't say no — which makes 
Corky just plain mutt, but a very smart 
one. He will yawn, stretch, sneeze or 
bark, on cue. One of his recent pictures 
was Theodora Goes Wild. In that picture 
there was a scene where Corky accom- 
panied Melvyn Douglas into the house. 
The action called for Douglas to pause on 
the threshold and wipe his feet on the mat. 
The director thought it would be cute to 
have Corky imitate Douglas, and wipe his 
feet. It was a new trick and everybody 
supposed it would require hours to get the 
"take." The company was dismissed for 
lunch and told not to hurry back. But 
Corky fooled them. He learned the trick

in about ten minutes and by the time the 
company returned from lunch the scene 
was already shot. They promptly christ- 
ened the dog "One-Take Corky." 

Everyone remembers Strongheart, who 
won international fame by his work in 
silent pictures. His grandson, Lightning, 
is now a dog star. Perhaps his most re- 
markable role was that of an "eye-dog" 
in which he had to lead a blind man. 
Lightning had never worked in one of the 
harnesses used by eye-dogs until he was 
signed up for the picture. Usually it takes 
three or four months to train a dog to lead 
a blind man. Lightning learned in three 
weeks. A special trainer came to Holly- 
wood from the Seeing-Eye School in New 
Jersey where the German shepherd dogs 
are trained for real work with the blind. 
With his assistance, Lightning's master, 
Earl Johnson, taught the dog how to guide 
a blind man through street traffic, to stop 
at curbs, and to turn right or left when 
occasion demanded. It was the first time 
a dog had ever played such a role on the 

Dog Has "Stand-In" 

When Lightning gets a call for a picture 
he goes with his master for an "interview" 
with the director. If he is chosen for the 
part, a contract is drawn setting forth his 
salary and the length of time he is to work. 
When his picture work begins, Lightning 
goes to the studio in his own private 
dressing room, a portable dog house on 
wheels, which is loaded on a truck. He is 
accompanied by another German shepherd 
dog called Gary who acts as his "stand-in." 
Gary is used by the cameraman to get his 
focus and lights in position. This saves 
Lightning from getting too tired or too hot 
from exposure under the bright lights. 
When everything is in readiness, Lightning 
steps in and does the scene. 

In private life, Lightning has a beautiful 
mate. Silver Queen, and he is the proud 
father of Lightning, Jr. The puppy has 
already started his kindergarten training, 
in preparation for picture work later 

Lightning lives at Toluca Lake where 
many of the other movie stars live. His 
kennel is carpeted with cedar shavings 
which make a nice soft bed and also keep 
the fleas away. Naturally, Lightning 
would be considerably embarrassed if he 
had to stop in the middle of a scene and 
scratch because of a flea. 

Hollywood is famous for its Cinderella 
stories but there is none more delightful 
than the story of Kiwi, a canine "Cinder- 
ella," who has just stepped from alley to
